"Christmas Bells" presents melodies specifically arranged for eight, thirteen, and twenty note handbell sets. There are two songs for eight note set, three for 13 note sets, and 3 for twenty note sets. These arrangements have been crafted to encourage beginning "first time" and moderately advancing players to pick up a bell and express the special joy found in the carols and songs of the Christmas Season. This package gives the directors of ensembles a wide variety of material to encourage their players in practice and performance. Every melody in "Christmas Bells" is accompanied by two "state of the art" digitally mastered CD tracks. This collection will work with the melody cards but not really with the color coded cards.
