As the bridge from the Classical to Romantic Era, Beethoven's name, and much of his music is recognized by many students. Here is a chance for your beginning bell players to experience performing Beethoven's music. Both 'Ode to Joy' and 'Russian Folksong' are written for a standard two octave bell set. They can be played on handbells, hand chimes or tone chimes. Ode to Joy is a little under one and a half minutes long and uses 18 bells. Russian Folksong is a little under one minute long, and uses 15 bells. These pieces are useful both for classroom and concert use. This is a reproducible product. This piece may be purchased as a score for one performing group, and copies made for the members of that one performing group. Save money and space while allowing for more flexibility in annotating from year to year.
