Handbell choir handbell (3-5 octaves handbell choir) - 3
Composed by Arnold B. Sherman. Octavo. Beckenhorst Press #HB628. Published by Beckenhorst Press (BP.HB628).
Item Number: BP.HB628
Arranged for 3 to 5 octave handbell choir and optional 3 to 5 octaves of handchimes. Level 3. Emotionally powerful, Arnold Sherman's setting of the well-loved Appalachian carol is a glorious choice for throughout the holiday season. An ethereal opening gives way to a verse underscored with flowing and harmonically-rich accompaniment. A key change gives way to a more powerful iteration of the theme before the piece fades away into haunting nothingness.
