Five Spirituals for Beginning Ringers
Each setting is written for Level One beginning ringers. There are no bell changes, no note values smaller than the quarter note, and rhythms are kept simple and accessible. All articulations may be played while keeping the bells/chimes in the hand, and there are suggestions in the performance notes to help handchime ringers with handbell articulations that are not workable with chimes. Titles include "Mary Had a Baby", "Were You There", "He is King of Kings", "Kum Ba Yah", and "Great Day!". Enjoy!
