Joyful, Joyful!

By Ludwig van Beethoven

Handbells (2-3 octaves) / handchimes (2-3 octaves) - Level 1+
Composed by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). Arranged by Valerie W Stephenson. Handbell score. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGB418).

Item Number: LO.CGB418

Ringers of all ages will share in the infectious delight of this creative arrangement. "Joyful, Joyful!" celebrates the well-known "Hymn to Joy" by offering many different possibilities. It is all malleted by handbells, or all rung by handchimes. The "sticking" (clicking together of the mallets) is meant to imitate a band drumline, with each ringer having two mallets. Experimentation is welcomed in this simple but exciting rendition. The two editions are compatible for massed ringing.
