Could just be a misprint, maybe the head of the note missing.

Sounds correct, especially since there isn't a rest sign for that voice. Based on the position and appearance of the stem, it's probably a D quarter note.

Yep, that's what I think too. A D quarter note. The pattern likely repeats somewhere else in the piece, so look for it.

Or DA.This is not the only problem in this bar: there is no quarter pause on the second beat, and the third beat is not positioned symmetrically in both hands.

Possibly a minim (half note), then.

Two beats are missing in the bass clef of that measure.

Look at the treble clef of that measure. The last two beats mimic each other in note value. They add up to 2 beats.

The first two beats of the treble clef also add up to 2 beats. But there are no notes or rests in the bass clef, except for the odd line.

Thus, two beats are missing in the bass.

If the bass is missing a single note head, the note would be a half-note.

However, if there are other errors in the first two beats of the bass, it could be any combination of notes and rests and that add up to 2 beats are missing.

Actually they are positioned symmetrically. It is an optical illusion because the stems of the treble clef notes are on one side of the note heads in the third, whereas the stems of the bass clef notes are on the other side of their note heads.

If you put a straight edge vertically against the note heads, and they are perfectly aligned.

Look at the last beat triplet; the stems are all on the same side in both clefs, and the note heads again are aligned.

I think that is a courtesy beat to let you know not to play on beat one and cover up the right hand quarter note because with this style you don't notate all the rests.

Omitting the rests is standard practice in handbell music and I'm always explaining what the intent was.

Thanks people ! Turns out it's just a misprint. Here is the correct version.

Need to remind myself never to trust MuseScore piano scores. Better to just pay for the authentic score.
