"Bell Prayers" was written for the busy handbell choir. So many times our rehearsal time seems too short to take the time for a devotional. We often come to rehearsals with the worries and frustrations of our busy lives. This book will enable the choir to "warm-up" with a short, sight-readable tune that will focus everyone's attention on our purpose, "to ring praise to the Lord." While the pieces were written as "warm-ups," they do follow the church and calendar year. As service music they could become offertories, introits, hymn introductions, or interludes... use your imagination and enjoy! Only one book is needed; the director has permission to photocopy the music. Although this book is listed as being accessible for 2 - 5 octaves, most of the music is actually scored for 3 - 4 octaves.
