Meditation from "Thais"

Image 1

Arranged for 4 to 7 octave handbell choir and optional 4 to 7 octaves of handchimes.  Level 3.  This transcription of the well-known tune by Jules Massenet is perfect for the advanced ensemble looking to showcase their musicality.  With the accompaniment carried entirely on handchimes and the melody on bells, the contrast of the two lets each part live up to its fullest potential.  Complex harmonies and intricate rhythms abound, giving ringers a chance to work on their rhythmic accuracy.  A stunning choice for any advanced ensemble.
