I Stand All Amazed - Bell Chart

I was asked for a bell chart for I Stand All Amazed so I thought I would share it with anyone who is interested.  It is best to be played with the 20-note Kidsplay handbell set.   However, the 13-note set would suffice, you just wouldn't have the octaves.  If you want to know how I use handbells in Primary, or where to purchase a set, find more information HERE.

You can download a copy of my bell chart HERE.  I'd recommend printing on card stock and placing in sheet protectors.

**With this chart, the notes that are to be played using the higher octave bells (like the C, C# D, and D# on page 5) are deNOTED (ha!) by a black circle around the note.  The lower octaves do not have a black circle.  If you do not have the 20-note set and only the 13-note set, just disregard as it can still be played without the octaves.  If it's too confusing for the kids, just have both octaves play at the same time.  Leave a comment with any questions.

(if you find any mistakes, PLEASE let me know!)

Hi Camille! My primary only has the set with 8 bells, do you think we could make it work or would it be too tricky since its meant for the 20 bell set? Thanks! :)

This song has SO many sharps (#) that I don't think it would work with the 8-bell set. You'd have to skip every note that had a sharp (#) and that is almost half the song. I'd really work on adding to your set so you can have the sharps (#).

You can transpose the piece into Key of C in lds.org, then just have the kids play chords on downbeats?
