It's Only a Paper Moon
This favorite Harold Arlen tune, written in 1932, was very popular during WWII and has become a jazz/pop standard through recordings by Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and more. Paul has beautifully crafted this for handbells with a really cool addition of handchimes. Optional repeats make it easy to adjust the length to fit your program. Including trap set and string bass (scores not included), or even a vocalist will add another layer to the performance. Ringers will enjoy this piece and you will definitely want to add this toe-tapping audience-pleaser to your concert repertoire. G Major. 100 measures.
