Xylophone, Percussion Ensemble, Handbell, Orff instruments, 1 octave handbells, Boomwhackers - Early Intermediate - Digital Download
Composed by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759). Arranged by Sharon Wilson. Contemporary Classical, Sacred, Classroom, Christmas, Children's Music. Score, Set of Parts. 14 pages. Published by Sharon Wilson (S0.227651).
Item Number: S0.227651
This arrangement includes two verses. The first verse is “easy” with fewer notes. The second verse is “intermediate” and expands the melody by adding more notes. If you want to learn (practice) only the “easy” verse, an optional ending is provided or it can be skipped to perform the two verses together.
This set of scores uses black and white noteheads and is best suited for musicians already familiar with reading standard music notation. For beginning musicians, this same set of scores is available (sold separately) with color coded noteheads.
Only filled noteheads (quarter and eighth notes) are used so the notes are easier to see (this does not indicate the bells need to be silenced immediately before the next beat). Also, only quarter rests are used to help visualize the number of beats per measure. Lyrics and chord names are provided as well to aid in the learning and teaching of this song.
The number of ringers and whackers needed will vary depending on the skill level of the participants. For more advanced players, each person could be assigned two notes. For beginners, it is best to assign one note to each person. Instrument assignment suggestions are provided for 8 and 15 players.
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, just to name a few
Permission is granted to make up to 10 copies of each score. For more than 10 copies, please purchase additional sets.
