Glory to God in the Highest
Giovanni Pergolesi's original work has been set here for 3-4 octaves of bells and optional 3 octaves of handchimes and keyboard. The keyboard picks up the sixteenth-note figures while the bells ring the melody backed up by chordal texture. The handchimes part is made up of quarter and half-note chords, however, there are some chords tied across the bar line. Level two pieces with this full sound should be welcome by directors of those choirs.
