With this new collection (volume V), Christine Anderson adds to her series of Classic Baroque Solos. These classical solos from the Baroque period incorporate more advanced techniques in order to perform them musically and at the correct tempo. These songs use bell trees, cymbells, handchimes, and upside down handchimes along with multiple bells-in-hand methods. Choreography is suggested in a limited way; most pieces leave blocking strategies up to the advanced ringer. The organ accompaniments are arranged by Cathy DeRousse.
With this new collection (volume IV), Christine Anderson adds to her series of Classic Baroque Solos. The bells settings range from level 1 to 2 and all are paired with organ accompaniments by Cathy DeRousse.

For solo handbells, here is a setting of Martin Nystrom's popular new hymn based on Psalm 42. The moving notes in the piano part bring to mind a flowing stream, while the slower handbell notes reflect the quiet movements of the deer. An accompaniment CD with the piano part at a slower rehearsal tempo as well as a performance tempo track is also available.
This collection of handbell pieces provides a range of sacred repertoire for a soloist to perform with piano accompaniment. Popular worship songs are arranged for a solo ringer for a church recital or special music.
Solo handbell artist, Christine Anderson, in collaboration with piano arranger, Dan Kramlich, put together the top-selling collection, Songs for the Solo Ringer. This instructional collection for beginning solo ringers features ten settings useful on a variety of occasions throughout the church year.
