What is probably the world's most often performed song is finally available for handbells in two (count 'em!) . . . two useful and uproariously fun versions. For an 'Introduction plus One-Time-Through setting,' take the first ending. For an extended 'Theme and Variations' setting, take the second ending, and experience transformations of this universal tune into a beguine, a polka, a dirge (for those birthdays we'd like to forget), and a special surprise ending that the audience won't be able to 'Handel.'.
