Sandra Eithun’s primary collection of popular Easter hymns and second set of popular Easter hymns are perfect for the busy Easter season, especially if you are shorthanded for church services or would like to travel with a small group ringers. Each piece uses only twelve bells, spanning F5 to C7. Because not every piece is in the key of F, these collections offer a wide variety of harmonic possibilities while still maintaining a small number of ringers. Scored for 3 octave handbells or handchimes. Set 1 is Level II–II+. Set 2 is Level II.
Alleluia! Sing to Jesus (HYFRYDOL)
Though not in the Easter section of Lutheran Service Book, the text of this hymn is rich with triumphal Easter overtones, and they are conveyed in this prelude. “Hark! The songs of peaceful Zion” ring out the Easter message: “Jesus out of ev’ry nation Has redeemed us by His blood.”
