Hark the Herald Angels Sing
15 bells, ranging from C5 to C7 with an optional D7, are required for this solo handbell piece with piano accompaniment. Bell layouts and technical suggestions are written into the bell score. The mood is upbeat, allegro, and the melody has both 4/4 and 6/8 meter treatments. Mallets on tabled bells, shakes, and pluck lifts are special articulations that add to the flavor of the work. Easy to Medium difficulty in 75 measures.
