He Is Risen, He Is Risen!
Open Now Thy Gates of Beauty
Celebrate Easter with “He Is Risen, He Is Risen!,” a majestic arrangement of the hymn tune UNSER HERRSCHER. The 2 octave solo version ranges from C5 to G6, and is playable either on bell tree or rung from the table (omitting optional cue-size notes.) A 2-3 octave version for duet or trio with no shared bells is also available. Beginning and concluding with a fanfare, using either shakes or mallet rolls, and a smoother, more lyrical mid-section, it will be a triumphal addition to the repertoire.
The downloadable mp3 accompaniment track is 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.)
