Octaves: 3-5 octaves handbells
Composer: Michael Joy
AGEHR Level: II and III
Description: Three individual processionals are presented in this publication: Dorian Pastorale (Grace), Mixolydian Entrada (Triumphal Entry or Procession of the Kings), and Lydian Stomp (Make a Joyful Noise). Each processional uses short, easy to memorize ostinato patterns which are layered together in various combinations. For each processional, Michael has provided three variations of optional movement: easy, moderately difficult, and challenging.
The combination of handbells and processionals can be magical. Adding simple steps and creative movement can be enchanting.
