The First Noel - Austin

Image 1

3-5 octave handbell choir, optional 3-5 octaves of handchimes and optional D8 and E8, level 3-.  Newcomer Brenda Austin gives us this delightful arrangement that delicately knits together Pachelbel’s famous Canon with The First Noel. Handchimes are interwoven at key points to articulate various parts of the two melodies. With no special techniques and minimal bell changes, ringers are free to focus on the nuance of melody and line in their pursuit of a truly musical performance. This intriguing spin on two familiar tunes is sure to delight ringers and listeners alike.
