Beautiful Savior – Descant with Handbells

I’ve created a bell chart for the descant to Beautiful Savior (find my lesson plan for teaching this song HERE).  The handbells are a great way to review and/or perform any song!
 
Please note that this bell chart requires the 5-note add-on set in addition to the basic 8-note set.  Any time you see sharps (#) in the charts, it will require the additional 5-note add-on set.
 
Download my chart using the button below (if you find any mistakes, PLEASE let me know!!).  You can see how I use handbells in primary HERE.

  1. I recently got called to Primary Music Leader and love the idea of incorporating the handbells. As I am not familiar with them, is their a set you recommend for purchase? Also, is the use of the handbells appropriate for use in the Children's Program in Sacrament meeting? This is all new to me, but I love having so many wonderful blogs to pull ideas from. Thanks so much!

  2. Hi Britt!

    If you click on that last link in the post for how I use handbells in primary, that should answer all of your questions. After reading that, and if you still have questions, please let me know!

  3. Thank you for creating this chart, it is such a huge help! The only error I noticed was in the last line – the songbook says "Give glory ever more! Evermore!" You have the correct notes, but your words are different. You wrote "Give praise and glory ever more! Evermore!" Since the notes are correct, it isn't a big deal for me, but I thought you would want to know. Thanks again!

  4. A music teacher brought to my attention that a basic 8 note handbell set won’t work for this song. The song is in D# major and basic 8 note handbell sets come in C# major. You would need extra bells for this song, just so you know, or transpose the song to C# for the pianist.

    1. Hi Katie!

      Yes, that’s correct. Since the note chart has sharps in it, you need the additional 5-note set (the yellow Kidsplay box). Sorry if that’s not more clear and thank you for clarifying.
