Good Christian Friends, Rejoice and Sing!
Cathy Moklebust’s joyous arrangement of Melchior Vulpius' tune GELOBT SEI GOTT will be especially appropriate for Easter and Eastertide. It is published for both handbell solo and duet/trio. The easy solo version ranges from C5 to G6, and is playable on bell tree, or from the table by omitting cue-sized notes. The duet or trio version features no shared bells. A fanfare opening and closing surround a flowing, gentler stanza which gives the accompanist the main hymn tune.
The downloadable mp3 accompaniment track is compatible with both 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.)
