Hymns of Joy and Praise Volume 2
"Hymns of Joy and Praise, Vol 2" includes very accessible settings of eight well-known hymn tunes. Each three-octave setting uses only 21-27 bells. Special ringing techniques are limited, making pieces suitable for beginning handbell or handchime choirs. The arrangements have no modulations, and the beat is subdivided only for essential melody notes. There are a minimum of chromatics and, when they occur, ample time is given for bell changes. The full-chord writing provides security for beginners, while these extended arrangements provide new challenges to ringers as they learn to make music for worship or concert.
