A wonderful Christmas piece, "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" is presented here in a straightforward version that can be played by handbells, tone chimes or hand chimes. Using 23 bells from a standard two octave set, it rises above a beginner song through the use of chromatic harmonies and shifting meters. It is a brief one to one and a half minute arrangement that would work well in a worship setting as an introit, or as a short interlude in a concert setting. 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. .
