3-7 octaves  level 3  Jason Krug provides us with the dramatic and lyrical Compassion, for three to seven octaves of handbells with optional B-flat 1 bell, and optional two octaves of handchimes.  A flowing eighth note accompaniment offsets the plaintive melody, which is set first in chimes and then in bells.  As the piece builds to a climax, the meter changes from duple to triple, before changing back for the quiet conclusion.  This majestic opus is ideal for a Lenten service, or for general concert or worship use throughout the year.
