When Johnny Comes Marching Home (Stephenson)
Quantity in Basket: None
Code: 20161
Price: $4.55

Octaves: 3-6 octaves handbells ~ optional drum
Arr. by: Valerie Stephenson
Description: This arrangement of an all-time favorite features creative techniques such as grace-note ruffs, horizontal lifts and flutter. Opening with the softest pianissimo possible, the bass bells create the sound of distant drums. The treble bells enter depicting the sound of far off trumpets calling the soldiers to battle. The intentional cross relationship between the Db6 and D5 natural represent the two sides of battle. All of this builds to a forte before quieting back down for the entrance of the well known tune.

Valerie has crafted a thoughtful and exciting arrangement of the traditional American Civil War song through the use of innovative techniques varying tempi and careful harmonizations. This can be a real show stopper for your individual groupís concert or in a massed ringing situation. Optional snare drum.
