A hauntingly beautiful handbell introduction sets the scene for the timeless "Greensleeves" melody that features the delicate sound of a hammered dulcimer, harp, or harpsichord. Alternatively, the sounds of the solo instrument part may be played on a synthesizer. This combination of solo instrument with handbells and handchimes provides a lovely addition to the worship or concert experience. The full score includes parts for hammered dulcimer, keyboard and harp.
