Hymn to Joy
Beethoven's famous melody is set here in two accessible pages for beginning choirs. The few eighth notes are part of the melody line, which occurs in upper and lower bell parts. Martellatos, staccato technique, and shakes are sprinkled throughout for interest. The score is full, allowing all ringers a chance to play, and there is a key change as well as a repeat to watch out for. Arranged in G Major and C Major, measures total 40.
