Sheep May Safely Graze

By Johann Sebastian Bach

2 or 3 octaves handbells - Grade 2
Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) and Sharon Elery Rogers. Christmas. Score. Chorister's Guild #CGB688. Published by Chorister's Guild (CG.CGB688).

Item Number: CG.CGB688

Level 2- * This gently flowing music is based on one of Bach's most beautiful, haunting tunes. It is often heard as a choral anthem or a vocal or organ solo. With the constant ringing of solid chords building to a crescendo in the middle section, the use of a few techniques such as TD, mallets, or SK (with vibrato when rung by handchimes) are sprinkled throughout to reach a forte climax. The piece then closes with a more subdued ending.

    Beautiful arrangement of a classic piece - sounds wonderful but easy to play - - definitely a keeper!
