This stately arrangement of "Joy to the World" is ideal for beginning handbell and handchime choirs. The melody is simplified to avoid subdivision of the beat; there are no bell changes; and flexibility in the written techniques allows you to pick the best option for your choir. Adding interest and an appropriate challenge, the piece ends with the melody performed in canon.
