Over the Rainbow

By E.Y. "Yip" Harburg
Harold Arlen

Over the Rainbow

This charming setting captures the appeal of the original performance, allowing that lovely and familiar melody to shine. While best played with 13 bells (adding a B5 natural to the regular F5-C7 in F major), an option is given for ensembles who simply don't want to deal with a 13th bell. Measures 21-28 are bracketed and marked "optional." Ringers may skip from measure 20 to measure 29 and forgo the B natural entirely.

For 12 or 13 handbells
Level 2+
