Handbell music with a "traditional Catholic" spin is very hard to find. However, those looking for such a piece need look no further than this accessible and exciting Fantasy by Frederick Frahm, which is based on a familiar chant melody, the Kyrie from Missa XI (Orbis factor). This easy 50-measure piece is filled with countermelodies, rich chords and canonic passages, and employs a variety of handbell techniques including mallets, plucking, and LV. Because it is in a convenient and common key for singing (d minor), this piece could easily be played before or after the schola's singing the chant Kyrie itself.
