Christmas Bells - Bell Chart for Melody

If you are new to handbells but would LOVE to try them this Christmas, this post is for you!  Christmas Bells is the simplest Christmas song in the songbook when playing the handbells.  What's best is there are no sharps so you only need the basic 8-note set to play the entire song! I lied!  There is an F#!  Sorry about that.  I've corrected my chart below.

Download my chart HERE.  I like to print charts on card stock and place in sheet protectors.

Check out my post HERE that goes into detail about using handbells in primary (where and what to buy as well).

I also have a handbell chart for Christmas Bells that plays the optional descant HERE.  This has no sharps, I promise!

Looks like you need the F# when you start on B. Starting on A solves that problem. The only change needed is instead of B below middle C, just play the D.
