A Festive Toll

Image 1

Written for 5 to 7 octave handbell choir and optional 3 octaves of handchimes.  Level 4.  Propulsive eighth notes underscore a primal melody of moving parallel fourths before passing on to a beautiful melody on handchimes.  A short chromatic interlude then gives way to a setting of the first theme accompanied by triplet eighth notes before returning to the opening feel and a triumphal conclusion.  A fantastic choice for any time you want to add a bit of mystery and intrigue to your concert or church service.
