WERE YOU THERE? (Handbell)
Reflective of the events of Holy Week, this quiet meditation on the traditional spiritual was initially arranged for solo piano by Joel Raney (included in "Meditations for Quiet Worship") and adapted here for handbells with optional choir chimes, by Arnold Sherman. The melody may also be played on B-flat clarinet, included in the score, which simply doubles the handchime melody presented in the inner voices. The reproducible clarinet part is included.
