Flower Duet (Dome epais le jasmin (from Lakme)

Image 1

Arranged for 3 to 7 octave handbell choir and optional 3 to 7 octaves of handchime.  Level 4+.  Leo Delibes.  From the talented pen of Sandra Eithun comes another fantastic transcription of a well-know piece from classical literature, this one from Léo Delibes’ Lakmé.  Flowing sixteenth notes and deep, sonorous bass lines create a truly magnificent tonal experience.  Delicate plucks and malleted notes appear throughout, replicating pizzicato string notes to great effect.  A true masterwork, and a brilliant addition to the advanced handbell literature.  The recording is a live performance of the Kalamazoo Ringers under the direction of Janet Van Valey.
