Octaves: 5 octaves handbells
Arranger: Stephanie Berryman
Description: Composer Jon Schmidt took a theme by Carl Sandquist and created this lovely piece – of which he said, “Playing this song is like playing the sunrise.” Stephanie has adapted it beautifully for 5 octaves handbells. It is nicely arranged using simple and exposed melody and accompaniment lines. It is filled with opportunities for expression and needs to be played with sensitivity and awareness of how melody and accompaniment complement each other. This is sure to be a favorite of ringers and audiences, alike.
