Chime Soloist

Abide With Me

  Arranged for solo handbells or handchimes with piano accompaniment, “Abide With Me” is simple enough that the novice soloist can actually master it and accomplished musicians can put it together quickly. Parts for an optional string ensemble (violins 1 & 2, viola, and cello) or optional keyboard reduction are also included in the folio and may be reproduced for as many string players as are available. Although on the easy side, this is a beautiful work written to provide a moment of calm in these trying and uncertain times.
