We Gather Together
A tender expression of thanksgiving—arranged for beginning handbell choirs. A repetitive harmonic motif winds its way throughout the arrangement. The melody is presented by both the lower and upper bells, with some reharmonization later in the piece.
The work was created during Matt’s 30+ year career as Director of Music within the church world. He often composed or arranged for the handbell choirs he directed. The Youth Handbell Choir at the North Parish Church of North Andover, Massachusetts premiered this arrangement the Sunday before Thanksgiving, 1993.
