SP2388 Christmas Bells


SP2388 Christmas Bells  Arranged by Bradley L. Bonner / Book and Downloadable Audio

Collection of 8 Christmas arrangements for Handbells/Deskbells. Every melody in Christmas Bells is accompanied by two state-of-the-art digitally mastered CD tracks. The first track includes the bell parts for listening or playing along. The second track is an accompaniment, minus the bells, for practice or performance. The carefully arranged tracks represent many styles of music. Each arrangement in this collection can be performed by one 20 Note Handbell Set. Using two or more bell sets will allow players to combine the melodies and descants and will also allow more players to practice and perform. Parts can be doubled at the director’s discretion and adding other chromatic instruments (bell sets, Orff instruments, handbells, Belleplates, choir chimes) will make interesting contrasts in timbre. The publisher grants the purchaser of the book permission to copy the written score for the handbell ensemble under their direction.
