The ancient Advent hymn "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" is flexibly arranged for 8, 10 or 12 handbells and optional keyboard, playable by 4, 5 or 6 ringers. Bell tones in the first stanza and pulsing eighth-notes in the second stanza propel this accessible and thoughtful setting. The bells used are within the 2 octave range, and may easily be rung with music stands rather than tables. As with other titles in the CG Digital Ringing Resources series, the publication is reproducible and sold as a digital download PDF file. An mp3 accompaniment track is also available for purchase.
