According to my friend Maestro, “Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee”is “the ultimate HAPPY SONG!” Arrangedfor one-octave handbells (G4 – F#5), this BEGINNING HANDBELL CHOIR piece literally ‘rings’with happiness in tone and lyric. Practice suggestion:  use a metronome during practice.  Begin around 60 bpm and work up to 90 bpm.For school, church, or civic organizations and events.  PERMISSION TO MAKE COPIES AS NEEDED.

A man of many words, Maestro has a suggestion for beginninghandbell ringers (see “America” arrangement by C.E. Walz for More of Maestro’swords): use a highlighter to mark the notes your bell plays in the piece. Ifyou play more than one bell, use different colors. And highlight the text wordsbelow your notes, too. If you lose your place, you can instantly see where yournext note will be (of course, that means you’ll have to sing along quietly during performance). Maestro adds, “Don’t drown out the bells!”  Key of Bb, two pages, 1:06 minutesperformance time (2:12 minutes with optional repeat)
