Music Sample: CGB450 Follow the Star (Handbell)

"Follow the Star" is based on Helen Kemp's choral setting of the Puerto Rican carol. The bass bells both ring and pluck/mallet the calypso accompaniment beneath the chordal melody rung by the treble bells. Maracas and claves (optional) provide additional rhythmic interest and excitement. The setting may be rung by handbell choir alone or may serve as the accompaniment to the anthem (in lieu of keyboard accompaniment). The infectious rhythms and singable melody will linger in the minds of listeners as well as ringers. Suitable for worship or concert.


Voicing: Handbells; 3,4 or 5 octaves


Composer: Puerto Rican carol


Arranger: Martha Lynn Thompson


Level: 2+
