The Great Gates of Kiev

M. Mussorgsky

  • Instrumentation: Handbells & More: for handbell choir with additional instruments
  • Comments: The famous finale from "Pictures at an Exhibition." Scored for handbells with organ and brass trio: trumpet, mellophone, and bass trombone. The last two may alternately be played on French horn and tuba, respectively. This is an arrangement of the entire movement straight through, as Mussorgsky wrote it—a great selection for Ascension Sunday or any other festive occassion. For a handbell choir of 5, plus instrumentalists.
