Swing Boogie on Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee
Third in a set of jazz hymntune arrangements, this very upbeat, swingy rendition of "Hymn to Joy" features solo trumpet, string or electric bass, and drum set along with the handbells. Improv-style solos are included in the handbell part, but if desired they may be omitted and played only by the other instruments. Jazz articulations are achieved in the handbell part through extensive use of RT, accents, and grace notes. This piece (which is arranged in the key of F Major) will be a fresh addition to worship or concert settings. Measures total 101.
