Octaves: 4 octaves handbells
Other parts required: SATB chorus, harp cello
Composer: Matthew Prins
Description: An original work by Matthew Prins, Illumina opens with an ethereal soprano solo supported by simple handbell chords with harp joining the solo a third higher. As this work progresses, there are several melodic sections featuring harp and bells with cello playing a counter melody, and the chorus joining all. The sound file is truncated due to length but can be heard in its entirety on the publisher’s web site. This is a fabulous work for a special worship occasion.
