Type: Quartet - 3 octaves bells; 3 octaves handchimes; optional brass quartet or trumpet solo

Description: Commissioned by Velocity Handbell Ensemble to open their Vintage & Vogue Tour, this piece has been expanded to fit a variety of handbell ensembles and situations. The quartet, 3 octaves, 4-5 octaves and brass quartet settings are totally compatible and completely independent so they can be performed separately or in any combination.
This piece is particularly effective in a massed choir setting. If desired, the first three measures may be used as a processional. Performance Notes provide a variety of suggestions for ways to use this versatile piece.
There is also a 4-5 octave choir version - Cat. 20172.
