Beginning bell tree ringers need melodies they know, with only 8 or 9 bells to play. This arrangement includes three familiar melodies, "Joy to the World", "The First Noel", and "Away in a Manger". It can be played with either a C5 to C6 bell tree, a C6 to C7 bell tree, or combinations of both. It has one extra Bb on one verse. If there are three beginning players, one player can take each verse. It ends with a reprise of "Joy to the World". It’s a great success-and-confidence builder for a ringer who would like to play a bell tree. An optional descant for a C instrument or another bell tree ringer is also included.
