Arr by Christine Anderson . . . Early Classic Hymn Tunes . . .
This classic arrangement is meant for a soloist looking for a first challenge beyond easy basics -- it is not really difficult, but involves intervals, two key changes, a few measures of basic Shelley/Four-In-Hand, and a bit of length. The music has two parts -- the hymn Morning Has Broken (A and B sections, and the hymn Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee (also A and B parts). The two MHB sections are similar, but in different keys, and with a melody that skips around -- and the JJWAT sections are scalewise, but also similar in two different keys. The piece in total is 108 measures long.
The piano part is not difficult, and can be played by a decent high school (or even a very good junior high school) pianist
The music requires 3 octaves of handbells, from A4 up to E6 -- the handbell notation is Level 1+
• Keys of C, D, F, and G Major (one after the other), 3/4 and 4/4 time signatures, marked 108 speed
• Quarter notes throughout, with a very few 8ths and dotted quarter/8ths; there are no accidentals, once the key shifts have been done
