Advent Procession on Savior of the Nations Come
The tune NUN KOMM, DER HEIDEN HEILAND has been creatively set for an organ prelude and a procession with handbells, and chimes or percussion. The tempo is slow and the mood is free, almost chant-like. Handbells contribute to a light, sparse texture and play throughout the processional. Performance notes suggest spatially separating the bells from the choir for a more dramatic effect.
