Best Timbrel Music - Salvation Army Timbrel Marches

Updated on June 10, 2013

Best Timbrel Music - Salvation Army Marches

Timbrels are a longstanding tradition in The Salvation Army. Salvation Army women have played the tambourine for well over a hundred years. It is played during church and while marching in parades.

The Salvation Army has a lot of great music, especially the marches played by the brass bands, but what songs are the best for a great timbrel drill? I have compiled my list of top marches, and I invite you to add your favorite.

The internet has allowed timbrelists to communicate like they never have before. Since they are spread around the world playing in local corps, the spread of ideas has been limited to camp and divisional events. Now, timbrelists can interact worldwide!

The site is very interactive, so please add your comments and suggestions - I am only one person, there are many more timbrelists out there with a ton more ideas to share!

Quote

From William Booth, Founder of The Salvation Army

"If I thought I could win one more soul to the Lord by walking on my head and playing the tambourine with my toes, I'd learn how!"

- William Booth, Spoken to the young Rudyard Kipling

The Top Salvation Army Timbrel Marches - (according to me) - vote on the top 50 below!

  1. Onward Christian Soldiers
  2. Golden Jubilee
  3. Anthem of the Free
  4. Montreal Citadel
  5. To Regents Fair
  6. Goldcrest
  7. Christmas Joy
  8. Roll Call
  9. Fill the World with Music
  10. Star Lake

Other Salvation Army Music Sources - These are great resources for getting Salvation Army Marches and other Salvation Army Music!

Some of the things you will find here are great for Timbrels, other things are just awesome musical works of the people of the salvation army - Check them out - you might even know some of them!

Need A New Tambourine? - Need one for yourself? Need A Bunch To Start A Group?

Tamborines
Tamborines

Starting a new brigade at your corps? or just need to update your own? Here are some great options.

I suggest the smaller ones (maybe one row of jingles) for the beginners. Also a smaller head is easier for them to control (such as 8 inch) - I do not suggest 6 inch unless you have a toddler. They really are too small for Timbrels.

Don't forget the Ribbons!

Tambourines / Timbrels - Non-Official Salvation Army Tamborines / Timbrels

These are not official Salvation Army Tambourines but they are very nice.

They could all work well for Timbrels.

As you can see these are some very economical alternatives to the trade center, that also work well - especially for beginners. I got several for a beginner crew very affordable, and they were great.

Sound Percussion Tambourine with Calfskin Head 10 Inches
Sound Percussion Tambourine with Calfskin Head 10 Inches

I suggest double row jingles for adults - they sound a bit better and are easier for an adult to hold.

 
CP379 10" Wood Tambourine, Headed, Single Row Jingles
CP379 10" Wood Tambourine, Headed, Single Row Jingles

I do suggest the single row jingles for young hands - they just fit better- beginners will appreciate the ease of the hold in comparison to the width of the double jingle

 
CP378 8" Wood Tambourine, Headed, Single Row Jingles
CP378 8" Wood Tambourine, Headed, Single Row Jingles

These are smaller all around - and provide an easier to control tambourine for very young Timbrelists. (they also come in 6 inch, but that is really too small for Salvation Army Timbrelist use.)

 
Remo TA-9210-14 Praise Tambourine - Praying Hand, 10"
Remo TA-9210-14 Praise Tambourine - Praying Hand, 10"

Pictured Tambourines give a nice personal touch - The praying hands are beautiful and presented well here. This could fit in well in any SA corps.

The Trade Center used to make tambourines with the crest on them. The Crest is still available as a transfer to be applied to any tambourine. (see other links)

 
Remo TA-9210-18 Praise Tambourine - Religious Dove, 10"
Remo TA-9210-18 Praise Tambourine - Religious Dove, 10"

Another option for pictured tambourine - it is less traditional SA, but is simple design that could be used by full brigade in a classy way. - Just thinking out of the box a little here.

 

Traditional Timbrels - Played with Class

Some Timbrelists continue to keep attention to detail, and you can see the difference.

Classy Timbrels ! (in my opinion) - The Ireland Divisional Timbrelists

The view is not great - but they have it! - They sound as one, they move in unison, they are not to "dancy" - they are traditional, classy, and overall very good !!!

Traditional Timbrels - How to do Timbrels With Class

This page has a lot of products, as well as video of non traditional timbrel displays and timbrel humor, but on a serious note, I was always taught the traditional timbrel ways, and believe all timbrellists should have a good foundation no matter where they take it. There is more to a timbrel drill than you see at a glance. It takes much work and practice to get it just right.

This is a great place to start if you are a beginner trying to get started with timbrels, or if you are just trying to brush up on the basics.

Interested in Timbrel Instruction? - Well, online demonstration at least?

This site will give you a simple instruction to drills.

You can also contact your local Salvation Army for more specifics on Timbrel Instruction at your local Salvation Army Corps.

Timbrel Networking

Meet others who share the passion of timbrels !

Connect With Other Timbrelists

The best way is to look in your division for other corps with timbrel brigades. But if you want to branch out even more - check out the facebook page !

Playing Timbrel and Harp
Playing Timbrel and Harp

The Timbrel in the Bible

Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. - Psalm 150:4

The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; among them were the damsels playing with timbrels. - Psalm 68:25

Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. - Psalm 149:3

Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery. - Psalm 81:2

They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the organ. - Job 21:12

And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets. - 1 Chronicles 13:8

And David and all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals. - 2 Samuel 6:5

Brittan's Got Talent

Simon Cowel is not sure what is the difference between Timbrel and Tamborine

Double Take Timbrels on Britian's Got Talent (UK)
Double Take Timbrels on Britian's Got Talent (UK)

Simon Cowell Gives Double Take the Buzzer

Britian's Got Talent (UK)

Just check out Simon Cowell's response to Double Take playing their tambourines (I mean timbrels). Now granted, without even deducting points for the Christmas garland, they didn't put on much of a show. I'm not sure how I feel about the two of them doing timbrels with the Salvation Army crest while wearing poorly fitting hot pink Walmart dresses, but that's a whole other debate. The tattoo of the Salvation Army crest is also a bit unsettling.

II wonder how his response would have been to a neatly uniformed larger group with a great routine and great music? Still not very good, I'd guess.

Q. What IS the difference between a timbrel and a tamborine?

A. The ribbons. (Has nothing to do with 1 or 2 rows of jingles)

Many often wonder what the difference is between a timbrel and a tambourine is. They share a common root - the tabret.

The tabret was an ancient instrument much like a tambourine without the jingles. It was a simple hand-held one sided drum. Being easy to use and small it was used in worship, as seen in scripture (Gen 31:27).

The tabret evolved into the timbrel which included the jingles and ribbons and was used with dance during worship. Miriam used it to celebrate after the parting of the Red Sea as seen in scripture in Exodus 15:20.

Over time, the dancing and the ribbons fell to the side, but the instrument went on - in the form of the tambourine, which did have jingles and did have a drum.

As time went by, the tamborine took on variations with the drum side sometimes omitted, and the shape shifting to a half moon.

In the late 1800's, a Salvation Army Salvationist, upon looking at an illustration of Miriam dancing with the timbrel, decided to revive this instrument and include it in their worship.

So at this point, the difference between the timbrel and the tamborine is not whether it has a drum side, and it is not whether it has one row of cymbals or two, it is whether it has ribbons and is used for dance, or whether it is unadorned and used for simply the sound.

Getting Really Creative

I was always taught the very traditional timbrels, and this would have never passed with any of my instructors, but it's a totally different approach. It is kind of cool. (I was always taught that there was no dancing in the SA, but clearly years have passed, and things have changed.)

      Really great lense--very informative. I didn't know there was so much to know about timbrels. I did add my comment in favor of timbrels. I gave this lense a thumbs up and I'm nominating it for the sunshine awards. I'd appreciate it if in returns you would nominated my lense Poems of Inspiration

      Go there first and check it out and if you think it worthy please nominate it. The proceeds go to Church! at Bethany, another Christian charity (a website for speading the gospel). Us Christians have to stick together. I like the quote you put from Booth at the beginning. The Salvation Army is doing a good work and I designated part of the proceeds of my Chritmas lense to them.

      Thanks,

      I love the tambourine with the 'Religous Dove'.

      Very well done, worthy of a Purple Star Award.

      I also love the the timbrel music and the Salvation Army.

      May you be blessed...
