As a member of her church handbell choir, Sylvia Woods began arranging music for lever (or pedal) harp and handbells. These wonderful arrangements beautifully showcase the harp with bells. If your church or school has a set of handbells, give these arrangements a try. As with all handbell or choir music, you will need to buy individual copies for each member of the handbell choir, the director, and the harpist.
This music is now being distributed by Jeffers Handbell Supply. If you'd like to order multiple copies for your bell choir, please order through their www.handbellworld.com website. Their stock number for this piece is MWD093666147X.
