Introits and Anthems for Voices and Bells - Volume 1

Advent through Baptism of the Lord

by Clark Kimberling
Text Author : Kathleen Pluth

Words of 3 texts by Kathleen Pluth © 2012 Kathleen Pluth. Music © 2014 GIA.

These introits and anthems were born from Clark Kimberling’s experience as composer-in-residence at an Episcopal church. The introits are intended for use at the beginning of a service prior to the processional. Each piece starts with the sound of one or two handbells to establish pitch, tempo, and spirit, then the voices enter with bells ringing throughout.


In addition to their use as a prelude to the gathering hymn, they may be used before or after the Gospel reading or during Communion. The seasonal categories should not limit usage. Introits and Anthems for Voices and Bells can also be used in creative ways for many occasions other than those specified in this collection.
