This well-known masterwork by J. S. Bach has been arranged by Bob Siltman to include handbells.

The voicing is arranged to fit an early adolescent all-male chorus, but it could be sung by mixed groups as well. It may be accompanied by piano, or harpsichord, if handbells are unavailable.

The audio is a live performance.
