Chime Soloist

Star Spangled Banner



  The triumphant American national anthem is arranged, first with the bells/chimes carrying the melody and then with the bells alternating the melody with the CD accompaniment. The tempo is not too fast, but multiple bell changes will require much preparation. It is scored in D Major.
