This is a peppy, well-arranged mixture of these two well-known spirituals. Elements of each melody are combined throughout, with "All Night" present mostly in the treble bells and "Swing Low" mostly in the bass. The music pushes along from beginning to end, and is a solid Level 2; it can be "swung", but that would add a difficulty level.
Recommended by Handbell Services as an excellent performance piece, with full chords throughout and an active bass in the middle section.
• Key of F Major, 4/4 time, marked "with spirit".
• 8th notes and dotted notes predominate, with syncopation.
• Malleting/plucking at the beginning; no other techniques.
• A page of performance instructions (including handchimes) on the back page.
