Octaves: 3 octaves handbells; harp or piano; organ or second harp
Composer: Charles E. Peery
Arranged for handbells, harp OR piano, and organ OR second harp. This is a beautiful setting of WACHET AUF. If piano is used instead of harp, the arpeggiated measures at the beginning and end can be played as written or improvised in a harp-like fashion, appropriate to the chords of each measure. The addition of singing bell adds a nice foundation for the opening bell and harp sequences which bracket the chorale.
