This is a wonderful collection of traditional Canadian folk songs, excellently arranged for handbells and optional handchimes. Each piece can stand alone and range in length from a minute and a half to just over four minutes. Techniques include LV, singing bell, mallets, marts, and thumb damps. These range from lively and jaunty tunes to amazingly beautiful and sensitive melodies, each of them lovely. This set is a perfect ‘staple’ for your handbell repertoire.
It should be noted that the price – at what amounts to $5.99 per title including permission to print as needed for your group – makes this a very economical purchase.Canadian Folk Songs 20626 web
