Good News, I Got Shoes arranged by Linda Lamb. For handbell choir (3-5 octaves) with optional 3 octave handchimes & percussion. Blues-Gospel-Spirituals, General, Sacred. Grade 3+. Handbell score. 12 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.2566).
This is a fun medley combining two traditional spirituals: "Ain't-a-That Good News" and "I Got Shoes." Syncopated rhythms swung lightly, and the addition of the optional percussion makes for an entertaining experience for both ringers and listeners.
