Our Bell Choir:
First used individually to simply gather a group of people together, handbells have evolved as finely tuned instruments. Each bell is limited in its pitch and note range, therefore the Handbell Choir is considered a single instrument with each member responsible for their own notes as they appear in the arrangement of music. It is of great importance for each member to be present in rehearsal and performance as their part is essential to the music being played. It is as much a pleasure to watch as it is to listen to the melodic sound as it reverberates throughout the sanctuary. Each month our Handbell Choir gathers together on the sanctuary balcony to perform the Prelude as we listen below in preparation to our Worship Service.
