Editors Choice Selection

A setting of Handel’s Suite No. 7 in G minor, this handbell transcription is well crafted and a sheer delight to hear. Passacaille, the French term noted by Handel in the original score, is more commonly known to us in its Italian variant, passacaglia. The piece is in 3/4, and in place of a constant bass theme there is a repeating series of chords used as a support to the variations. The complexity of the subdivisions increases as the piece progresses and more chromatics appear, providing a fun challenge for the ringers. The effect of plucked harpsichord strings finds its way into this transcription through the occasional use of mallets. This Level 4- piece is a wonderful addition to the advanced choir's concert repertoire.
