Octaves: 3,4, or 5 octaves handbells
Arranger: Larry Sue
Level: 5 (6+*)
Description: Larry Sue has arranged this favorite of everyone, from toddlers to centenarians, who has ever plunked out this tune at a keyboard and had fun improvising on it with a friend. It is filled with a variety of techniques, change of rhythms, and even an opportunity to ham it up a bit in a ‘contest’ between treble and bass ringers. This novelty work is not easy – but it will easily entertain your audiences!
*Please note: one ‘optional’ section is extremely dissonant for comedic effect and can be omitted. Also – this section is filled with many accidentals and thus, is rated at a difficulty of 6+, if played at tempo in its entirety. The remainder of the work is a solid level 5. The recording on the web site includes this section.
