Christ is Risen
Seventeen handbells ranging from F4 - A6 are responsible for the accompaniment to this SATB processional anthem for Easter. Optional percussion, finger cymbals, triangle and tabor add a special flavor as well. The texture of the accompaniment is varied from syncopation to triplet figures to 16th note patterns. The music is from the 13th century and the text is "Christ ist erstanden" from the 16th century.
