Four Advent Introits

Each introit is for solo voice, unison choir, or solo instrument and handbells.

  1. "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" (3 octaves needed, 12 bells used - Level 1) is set with a quiet and pensive drone-like accompaniment. The subtle ebb and flow of the accompaniment gives it a mood reflective of the sacred mystery of the hymn.
  2. "Hark, a Thrilling Voice Is Sounding" (3 octaves, 26 bells used - Level 2) is set to an original tune that captures the fanfare and expectation of the text.
  3. "Rejoice, Rejoice, Believers" (3 octaves, 19 bells used - Level 1) is set to the Swedish folk tune HAF TRONES LAMPA FÄRDIG. This setting emphasizes the quiet joy of the coming of Jesus the Bridegroom and Redeemer.
  4. "Savior of the Nations, Come" (3 or 4 octaves needed, 15 or 23 bells used - Level 1). Mystery and the plaintive dissonance of the ostinato chordal accompaniment match this simple and profound hymn tune.

Reproducible parts for voice/chorus or C instruments included. There are also reproducible parts for B-flat instruments. Except in a few instances, tempo, dynamics, and special handbell techniques are not given. This gives the director the freedom to interpret each introit in the way that best matches the particular mood or feeling desired for a given performance.
