HARMONIES FOR HYMNS, SET II
Choral Accompaniments for Ten Familiar Hymns for the Church Year and Special Days
Margaret R. Tucker
2, 3, 4, or 5 octaves Handbells or Handchimes
This second volume of the popular Harmonies for Hymns series provides chordal accompaniments for hymns used throughout the church year. As in the previous volume, chords played on handbells or handchimes accompany the hymn melody, which is sung or played by an instrument. Parts for C treble, B-flat treble and C bass instruments are provided. Reproducible sing-along sheets are also included, which are especially useful when ringing at retirement centers or other venues. The hymn accompaniments may also be used together with organ to accompany congregational singing. A list of harmonically compatable hymnal settings is included.
