Eight arrangements of Patriotic songs with CD accompaniments that may be played on Handbells, Deskbells, Belleplates, Bell Sets, Boomwhackers or any melodic instrument that includes the 13 chromatic notes C-c.
The arrangements found in LET FREEDOM RING have been crafted to encourage beginning players and moderately advancing elementary aged students to pick up a bell and explore their patriotic feelings. When the melodies and lyrics are performed with the CD accompaniments, performers and audiences experience and express the privilege of being American! Every melody in LET FREEDOM RING is accompanied by two state-of-the-art digitally mastered CD tracks. The first track includes the bell part for listening or playing along. The second track is an accompaniment for practice or performance. The carefully crafted accompaniments present fresh arrangements to well-loved melodies and encourage young players to become involved in the music making by joining the recorded orchestrations. Because of the “Patriotic” theme, LET FREEDOM RING will be equally useful in both church and school settings.
