Snow Lay on the Ground
Sharon Elery Rogers adds to the repertoire this easy, melodic, flowing carol on VENITE ADOREMUS for 2 or 3 octaves of handbells or handchimes. The piece begins and ends in a joyous mood with shakes, and uses various other techniques such as thumb damping, martellato, and plucking. The melody changes are well-marked as they move from voice to voice. Scored in C Major, this piece is 73 measures in length.
