Octaves: 3 or 5 octaves handbells
Arranger: Brian Childers
Description: This original composition features a lovely, lush melody beautifully supported by bells – sometimes with a countermelody. A very nice modulation from C major to Eb major near the end is quite satisfying for the listener. This is a lyrical work that even level 4 & 5 groups will enjoy since making it smooth and seamless throughout will be quite gratifying. The solo could be played by any instrument with the correct range, although cello is the instrument of choice to best show off the texture and interplay between the solo melody and the bell accompaniment.
