Abide with Me (Digital)
Cathy Moklebust has arranged William Monk’s beloved tune EVENTIDE in a gentle, calming style. It is published in editions for handbell solo and handbell duet/trio with piano accompaniment and optional flute. The very easy 3 octave solo may be played on bell tree or rung from the table, and ranges from D5 through C7. The 3 octave edition for duet or trio features no shared bells. Although the arrangement begins softly, the final stanza reaches strong, emotional heights before concluding in the same gentle style as the beginning.
The downloadable mp3 accompaniment tracks are compatible with both the solo and duet/trio versions. The solo version is also included in the collection, Sacred Solos for Bell Tree, Set 1: Lent, Easter, Pentecost and General Hymns (code CGB1203.)
