Take a Pair of Sparkling Eyes

This is a fantastic piece for Trombone players featured in our book Time Pieces for Trombone Volume 2. Download a free copy of the piece today or you can buy the book from our online shop. This piece is available in treble and bass clef parts.

The Time Pieces series is a collection of volumes containing well-crafted arrangements and original compositions spanning the centuries. Each volume features a wide range of material, balancing well-known pieces with less familiar music.

Beginning with the 15th/17th century (instrument depending) up to the present day, the pieces are presented in chronological order together with the year in which they were written. The aim of this series is to allow pupils to garner a sense of the different styles of music through time, and provide a varied source of repertoire for further studies and recitals.

Watch a performance of London Bells by ABRSM team member Kerry. Many ABRSM staff are musicians too, and while in lockdown, are turning to their instruments (and voices) to pass the time and to share music making with friends and family.
