Introit for the Feast of the Ascension
- Wellspring Music Works
Based on the hymn PUER NOBIS, this introit with an energetic but simple handbell accompaniment is the perfect piece to begin an Evensong or Eucharist service on the Feast of the Ascension. Solo plainchant presents the theme of the Ascension story, while the hymn tune is set metrically with the words of the Phos Hilaron. Choral parts and bell parts are both easy to learn, but will set the scene for the drama of the Ascension story.
