Sing We Now A’Wassailing!

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012
The Fellowship of the RingThis past Christmas, The Fellowship of the Ring had the incredible privilege of performing in The Master's College 2011 Come Christmas Sing. Our quartet, which consisted of Lindsay Christoph, Wendy Mack, Amy Mack, and Morgan Ruthardt performed both outside as the audience was standing in line waiting to enter and inside during the concert. The theme of this year's concert was the 1920's, so during the prelude our quartet dressed in fur coats and top hats and stood in front of the building. We performed numerous four-in-hand pieces that Amy arranged for our group.

As part of a class project, Morgan Ruthardt and I edited a handbell piece arranged by Paul Ellsworth. We auditioned the piece and were accepted into the concert. We had a wonderful time being a part of Come Christmas Sing in this way and we are looking forward to hopefully doing it again in the future.

Sing We Now A’Wassailing!

Hi, I was browsing the web to find Christmas music for a handbell quartet or trio and came across your TMC video on Youtube. I wonder, have you published your arrangements? I'd like 3 or 4 members of our established team to form a 'ready to go' group for Christmas where we could stand and play Christmas carols either inside or out and am trying to source some suitable pieces, using just 12 or 16 bells, to play. I think your playing is marvellous and so spirited. I've really enjoyed listening.

Happy Ringing,

re: Sing We Now A’Wassailing!

Thank you for your request! I apologize fo rthe late response. I have written a series of handbell quartets that use the same 12 bells for all the pieces and I am currently looking into various options for publishing.

I appreciate your interest and will keep you appraised when the pieces become available.
