By now preparations are underway for your Winter Concert! ChimeWorks has some suggestions for easy to teach songs with handchime accompaniment that will bring your program ringing success. During this busy time of the year, let us do the work for you! The lesson plans below are available for immediate purchase and download from ChimeWorks and include goals for NAfMe music standards, objectives and process for teaching in addition to the music score.
Check out the titles below that will have you shining in the silvery moon:. Dona Nobis Pacem is a traditional song in round or canon form. The text translates to Grant Us Peace and is taken from the Latin mass. While the source of this canon is unknown, it is believed to date from the 16th century. Jubilate Deo can be challenging as a six-part canon. Adding the ostinati will make it sparkle. The translation of the Latin is: O be joyful in the Lord.
The reference to the Sacred Nine probably refers to the nine muses of Greek Mythology. This would be a wonderful opening to a concert program. Handchimes accompany voices beautifully. Even if you own handbells, consider using handchimes with a choral anthem. Undeniably, there are times when handbells are more appropriate as on Easter Sunday with SATB voices, brass and organ however, there are times when the simplicity of handchimes is the perfect choice.
Because of their design, handchimes produce the purest of tones. Depending on the tube shape square is best , no other instrument has so few overtones. This is a useful quality when working with younger musicians as children will be able to hear the pitch of the handchimes easily and this will be helpful with intonation. Sometimes, when handbells are used to accompany choral anthems, the overtones present in the handbell sound may confuse the children when finding pitches.
The softer, vibrating aluminum tines of handchimes produces a mellower tone which does not overpower the youngers voices. The tone of the handchimes is ever present but not too bright or obtrusive. SATB voices will welcome the sustain of handchimes to their music when singing slower tempos with sustained phrases.
The ethereal sound of handchimes will provide musical line and add a rich thread of sound. If you have a favorite anthem with a simple keyboard part, consider replacing the keyboard setting with handchimes as in this setting of Babylon Canon arranged by Roger Emerson as performed here by the Westminster Choir College Concert Bell Choir.
Its origin is unknown. It is a three-part canon or round.
