Silv'ry Bells is a fine, jingling intermezzo with a Christmassy feel well in keeping with the horsed-drawn sleighs depicted on the cover of the original sheet music. Its form is AABBCCDB with an 8-bar introduction and 4-bar interlude between the AA and BB strains. The bell-like chords, indeed the whole piece, will warm the cockles of all recorder players hearts who have a bent towards campanology - an ideal item for a Christmas programme!
Silv'ry Bells was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
