This flexible setting of the lovely Irish tune CLONMEL is arranged as a handbell piece using mallets and optional handchimes. A choral setting for SATB voices is fully compatible with the handbell piece. When used together the voices may be accompanied by handbells alone or by handbells and keyboard. The piece may also be played by handbells and keyboard together without voices. Optional accompaniment CGB289 with 3, 4, or 5 octaves.
