After your handbell choir finishes playing the Prelude, their involvement in leading Worship doesn't have to stop!
This reproducible product provides valuable resources for utilizing handbells and handchimes throughout the worship service. Included are ways to add sparkle and meaning to hymns, calls to worship, processions, scripture readings, prayers, fanfares, and other responses.
Much of this volume is linked to the Revised Common Lectionary - Lectionary Year A, though some selections are appropriate for all Lectionary Years. Scripture and hymn-tune indexes will be helpful in worship planning. Volumes for Lectionary Year B and Lectionary Year C are also available.
The print version is fully reproducible and the digital version provides PDFs of all music, with PDFs and TIFFs of congregational parts for easy insertion into worship bulletins.
A demo CD recording is included in both the print and digital versions. Permission is granted for the original purchaser to duplicate as needed for handbell and handchime ringers as well as other instrumentalists. Please note that this is a non-returnable product.
