"A Winter Scene" is based on the Gustav Holst tune CRANHAM and Christina Rossetti's poem "In the Bleak Midwinter" - beginning as an impressionistic and literal presentation of the poem's first stanza: yearning for the Savior to be born. This lovely, gentle piece finishes in a major key in celebration of the prophecy fulfilled. Orchestrated for 4-6 octaves handbells with many optional instruments: 3 oct. handchimes, 3 oct. Petit & Fritsen or Whitechapel handbells, and percussion (gong, windchimes, suspended cymbal), this ethereal Level 3+ piece will add some delicate frosting to your Advent and Christmas services and concerts. 82 measures. Begins in G Major (with hints of E minor) then modulates to F Major.
