Octaves: 5 or 6 octaves handbells; 5 octaves handchimes
Arranger: Karen Thompson
Description: The use of singing bell, echoes, LV, random ring, and random mallet combine to create a wonderfully ethereal setting of the two melodies: Conditor Alme Sinderum and Divimum Mysterium. Handchimes carry the melody in some sections overlaid by bells in the 6’s and 7’s creating a gentle ‘twinkle’ effect.
Karen creatively has lower bells ring, then echo and move seamlessly into the singing bell – a very nice transition. This is a wonderfully sensitive and calm work which will enhance worship or concert, and enchant all listeners.
