These straight forward level 2- settings are essential arrangements for every handbell library. No table techniques were included so that any of the versions could be used to open a high school football or a local pro hockey game. They would also be perfect to use if your Church observes Memorial Day, Veterans Day or the Fourth of July. Also the settings would be useful for graduation ceremonies or Baccelaureate services!
Versions A, B, C & D in C major not only work well separately, but together in any combination -- perfect for a festival setting. The "Listen To This Title" link above
proves it; click it to hear what all four versions sound like combined. The "Preview This Score" file includes two pages from each version to give
you an idea of how the settings lay out.
If you have trouble deciding which version will be most useful, a Collection that includes all settings is available.
Version F is a 3 octave setting in F Major. Between the C version and the F version, my choir preferred the latter because it was busier, brighter and more colorful. Obviously, it is not intended to be played with the other versions, and for most folks the key F is better for lip syncing than actually singing.
