Octaves: 5 - 7 octaves handbells
Arranger: Michael Mazzatenta
Description: This transcription of Horatio Parker’s Allegretto from his Organ Sonata in Eb Minor, Op 65, is played using table mallet technique throughout. It moves along and will be fully worthwhile and a terrific addition to your concert repertoire. The challenge will be for each ringer to pay particular attention to accidentals, the musical line, shaping each phrase and bringing out the melody while striking the bell in the ‘sweet’ malleting spot. This is sure to be a favorite for both ringers and audiences.
