A great resource for free handbell music to get children started on their musical journey!
I just can't thank you enough for doing this work for us. My handbell fun choir had so much fun playing Jesus Loves Me and Away in a Manger with your handbell music sheets. Now this week we will play THE B-I-B-L-E. I know nothing about music......... I did not know where to begin until I saw your Handbell Heaven website. Thanks again.
Some of your handbell music sheets have bells with an arrow on the handle. What are these bells called? We just have the 8 handbell set. What are the handbells with the black handles? Thank you for your help.
Your set of 8 handbells consists of the notes from middle C to high C and are called diatonic. The black handle bells are called chromatic and consists of 5 notes C#, D#, F#, G#, and A#. There is also a set called the expanded range that consist of low A, A#, B, high C#, D, D#, and E. When you put the diatonic set, the chromatic set and the expanded set together, it makes a 20 piece set that will give you all the notes from low A to high E.
Do you have the handbell notes to "Joy to the World"? We would love to play that song with our handbells.
