Composer: Matthew Prins
AGEHR Level: 3
Description: Opening in 3/4 meter before changing to 4/4, the handbells provide the introduction, setting a serene atmosphere for the entrance of the melody. A cello, other C instrument or handchimes provide the first statement of the melody line. A brief interlude in 3/4 introduces a second statement of the melody, performed by handbells with the solo instrument (or handchimes) providing the contrasting musical line.
