Scored for Handchimes, Handbells

An accessible setting of the beloved tune "Irby," this piece has a short introduction followed by two full verse settings, first in G major then in C major. Both verses pair the melody with stepwise eighth note patterns in the accompaniment, creating a majestic and celebratory mood. This piece will sound grand with a minimum of rehearsal.

Instruments: Handbells (3-6 oct), opt. Handchimes (2)
