Brazilian Sleigh Bells
The Percy Faith favorite, Brazilian Sleigh Bells, is a delightful and energetic dance-like piece reflecting Samba style and Kurt has done a masterful job of scoring it for handbells. The melody flows throughout with the rhythms and counter-melodies supporting it. There are two occurrences of fun and challenging descending chromatics that feature a simpler ossia section if needed. There are many articulations throughout as well as a few LVs perfectly placed and dynamics help make this one really click! It moves right along and has a section that is a bit slower before returning to the original tempo. Optional sleigh bells are suggested but not scored. This is a “most-have” score for your Bronze ensemble!
