Continuing Kristine's series of music by Classic composers, here is "Handel for Bells." Two pieces, 'Hornpipe from Water Music' and 'Harmonious Blacksmith' are recognizable and well loved Baroque standards written for 16 bells from a 2 octave set. It is playable on handbells, tone chimes, hand chimes and Belleplates. No special techniques are used, and this is at an intermediate level of difficulty. Each piece is from two to two and a half minutes long. The Harmonious Blacksmith is the Air and first variation from 'Suite #5 in E Major,' Hornpipe is the main theme of the hornpipe section from 'Water Music.'

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.
