Recently Added Sheet Music – 16 August 2019 (& The Carillon)

By | August 19, 2019

Hi There

I have just returned from a couple of weeks in Europe (Belgium, Holland and France). Whilst visiting the Flanders Museum in Ypres, Belgium I came across a guy playing the bells via a type of organ .. called a Carillon.

Extract from Flanders Museum Website: Playing the carillon, the heaviest of all instruments (some weigh in excess of 20 tonnes), requires great timing and skill. The carillonneur uses his fists and feet to produce a tune on the carillon ‘keyboard’—a series of levers and pedals physically connected to clappers inside the stationary bells. The player’s movements are only slightly more elaborate than those of a typical pianist, but the amplified results are nothing short of epic, producing vibrations that demand instant attention. If you are interested there is more information on their website

Anyway back to our recently added sheet music. This week we have 7 new arrangements on Music Scores. Five of these have been arranged by Anne and two by D Lascelles.
