Item Number: S0.1135697

This sheet music is arranged for a one octave, 8-note diatonic scale Handbell choir with Piano accompaniment. The piano provides an introduction then the Handbells play the melody and occasional 2-part harmony. An optional repeat and second ending is included in case a longer song is desired.

Included in this set of scores is a combined score with both instruments (Handbells and Piano) on a grand staff plus two separate scores for the Handbells (one in standard format with black and white notes and the second with color-coded notes). A color-coded note chart is also provided showing the Handbell notes used for this arrangement as well as the number of times each note is played. The note distribution is helpful when assigning notes to ringers. You may want to assign fewer notes to beginners or evenly distribute the bells between all ringers.

The color-coded score is enlarged so the colors are easier to distinguish. Also, only filled noteheads (quarter and eighth notes) are used so the notes are full color and easier to see (this does not indicate the bells need to be silenced immediately before the next beat).

As noted above, one of the Handbell scores is color-coded for easier note reading for beginning ringers. This separate color-coded score uses the “Chroma-Notes™ Colored Music System.” If you have a set of Handbells with a different color scheme, “Chroma-Notes Stick Ons” can be purchased and applied so the Handbells match this color scheme.

Permission is granted to make up to 10 copies of each score. For more than 10 copies, please purchase additional sets.

A piano accompaniment and/or rehearsal track (MP3 format) is available for this arrangement as a separate purchase: “Joy to the World (Piano Accompaniment Track for One Octave Handbell Choir).”

This arrangement is one of the 10 songs in the collection “Christmas Carols (A Collection of 10 Color-Coded Arrangements for One Octave Handbell Choir with Piano Accompaniment).”
