Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

arr. Cheryl (Sutton) Baker – BFX-012

3-4 octaves of handbells + piano

Listen

This arrangement of "Praise to the Lord, the Almighty" is for solo ringer and piano, using three or four octaves of handbells.  The familiar hymn tune is filled with scales, and the arranger has built upon this.  The soloist and accompanist regularly trade playing the melody and harmony, making the partnership more of a duet than a solo/accompaniment relationship.  Full setup, rehearsal, and performance instructions are included, as well as suggestions to improve solo ringing techniques.

“The Swan” from Carnival of the Animals

Camille Saint-SaĎns, arr. Cheryl (Sutton) Baker – BFX-011

2 octaves of handbells or handchimes + keyboard

Listen

This arrangement of “The Swan” is for four ringers using four or five octaves of handbells plus a soloist.  Complete assignments are included, and the piece is Level 4 when played with four ringers.  Enclosed are solo parts for violin, viola, cello, Bb clarinet, or two octaves of handbells or handchimes.  This piece may also be performed with the accompaniment part played on a keyboard, so that the soloist may perform without the handbell quartet.  “The Swan” was originally written for cello solo with orchestral accompaniment as part of an orchestral suite entitled “Carnival of the Animals.”
