Still, Still, Still (Handbells)

9.99

This reflective arrangement of a beloved Christmas favorite is perfect for a candlelight Christmas Eve service.

The piece begins with a simple open fifth, gradually growing out of nothing using the “singing bell” technique. The singing bells underscore much of the arrangement, with the addition of hand chimes partway through. The piece ends as simply and quietly as it began – with the singing bells fading away to nothing.

Handbell Choir (12 bells with opt. 4 hand chimes)
Year of Arrangement: 2014
Length: 3:00 

This reflective arrangement of a beloved Christmas favorite is perfect for a candlelight Christmas Eve service. The piece begins with a simple open fifth, gradually growing out of nothing using the “singing bell” technique. (See a demo of the singing bell technique here. Need dowels? Get them here.)

The singing bells underscore much of the arrangement, with the addition of hand chimes partway through. The piece ends as simply and quietly as it began – with the singing bells fading away to nothing.

The piece is written for the small handbell choir (or handbell ensemble!), though it can certainly be played with more than six people. Here are a few ideas:

7 players: Have one person play the C5 singing bell. Have a second person play the C5 and D5 hand chimes.

8 players: Have one person play the C5 singing bell and one person play the G5 singing bell. Have a third person play the C5 and D5 hand chimes and a fourth person play the G5 hand chime.
