By Sharon Wilson. By African American Spiritual, African-American Spiritual, Anna Bartlett Warner, Anonymous, Edwin O. Excell, Folk Song, Philip P. Bliss, Traditional, Various, and William B. Bradbury. Arranged by Sharon Wilson and Sharon Wilson Music. Children,Christian,Easter,Folk,Spiritual. 99 pages. Sharon Wilson #777372. Published by Sharon Wilson (A0.1177364).

This collection contains 10 praise choruses notated for 13-note (one octave, C to C chromatic scale) instruments with Handbells on one staff and Boomwhackers® on a second staff creating an instrumental ensemble (requires one set of each instrument). Handbells play the melody while the Boomwhackers® keep a steady beat with three-note chords. 

For each song, there is a combined score with both instrument parts on a grand staff plus a separate score for each instrument. A note and chord reference chart is also provided for each song. To aid in the learning and teaching of these songs or for use with other instruments (such as a Ukulele), chord names are included on each Boomwhackers® staff and score. Lyrics are also provided on each score for sing along enjoyment or when using these arrangements as the accompaniment for a unison choir.

This set of scores uses colored noteheads corresponding to the Boomwhackers® color scheme.  If you have a set of bells or tubes with a different color scheme, "Chroma-Notes Stick Ons" can be purchased and applied so the instruments match the Boomwhackers® color scheme. 

Only filled noteheads (quarter and eighth notes) are used so the notes are full color and easier to distinguish (this does not indicate the bells need to be silenced immediately before the next beat). Also, only quarter and eighth rests are used to help visualize the number of beats per measure. All sharps and flats are displayed as well (shown in the key of C); a helpful reminder for beginning musicians.

The number of ringers and whackers needed for each song will vary depending on the skill level of the participants. For more advanced players, each person could be assigned two or three notes. For beginners, it is best to assign one note to each person. Note assignment suggestions are provided for each song.
Each of the 10 praise chorus arrangements is also available separately with accompanying preview pages and audio samples. 

Titles included in this collection:
The B-I-B-L-E
Dare to Be a Daniel
His Banner Over Me Is Love
I Will Sing of the Mercies of the Lord
Jesus Bids Us Shine
Jesus Loves Even Me
Jesus Loves Me
Micah 6:8 (He Has Shown You)
O, How I Love Jesus
This Little Light of Mine

Other suggestions and uses: 
* have both parts played by bells or both parts played using only Boomwhackers®     
* form a choir using multiple sets of bells and/or Boomwhackers® (this would amplify the sound and allow more people to participate)
* use as part of the music education for children at school, home, or church
* these colorful, inexpensive instruments can be enjoyed by all ages and add a fun, unique element to activities and programs: senior centers, family reunions, church retreats, home school groups, children's ministries
