The Turtle Dove

Matthew Compton
$4.95
HB718

Description

Arranged for 3 to 7 octave handbell choir and 3 to 7 octaves of handchimes.  Level 3+.  Haunting opening chords set the stage for Matthew Compton’s arrangement of this traditional English folk song.  An initial sparse treatment of the tune introduces the melody for those not familiar with it, before the setting progresses in complexity, both rhythmic and harmonic.  The piece travels through numerous keys, each time casting the tune in a new light.  A true delight for ringers and audiences alike!
