For 3-Octave handbells. A setting for handbells of the popular praise chorus. The biggest (and only) challenges with this piece is getting the rhythm right at the speed required as well as the unusual use of accidentals. If anyone wants to know why I left it in C major instead of a key signature of F minor, drop me a note.

These titles are suitable for an intermediate or advanced 5-octave choir. Crucifixus sounds very good when played on handchimes with the simple modifications listed in the music. Lenten Piece is a very reflective, almost new age piece in a minor key. If you listen very carefully you might be reminded of Kum Ba Yah (it's hidden in the piece). Rejoicing is a dance-like piece with a Renaissance, modal feel. The Cross Medley is a nice selection of titles that all have the word cross in their titles. Those include Jesus Keep Me Near The Cross, The Old Rugged Cross, When I Survey The Wondrous Cross and more.
