From 50 Quick Handbell Accompaniments

by Jeffrey Honoré

If you like adding handbells or chimes to your hymn singing, on the following two pages are a handbell and keyboard score for “Crown Him with Many Crowns” from Jeffrey Honoré’s 50 Quick Hymn Accompaniments for you to try.

Quickly learned, this shorthand notation allows one octave of bells or chimes to as many octaves as you have, to assist in accompanying hymns with a keyboard (part included) or alone. Be creative and add desired bell techniques to match the text of the hymn. (TDs for treble and plucking for bass, mallets or martellatos for all, or shaking for long duration treble notes.) This book is designed to allow handbells or handchimes to quickly join in playing with and enhancing congregational song
