The beloved Christmas classic "Silent Night" is available in both handbell solo and handbell duet/trio editions, and may be accompanied by piano and/or strings. The full score includes a string reduction part for electronic keyboards.
Franz Gruber’s tune STILLE NACHT has been arranged in a lovingly restful style, with the solo ranging from D5 through C7 and playable on bell tree or from the table. The duet/trio edition has no shared bells. The upper two (essential) parts range from A4 to C7. The optional third part ranges from G#4 to C4. The setting begins softly, gradually building in volume and emotion, and ends as peacefully as it began.
Three downloadable mp3 accompaniment tracks (piano only, strings only, and piano and strings) are available. Key of G Major. 76 measures.
