Arranger: Sondra K. Tucker
Description: Sondra Tucker has crafted a fabulous arrangement of this theme from the film The Magnificent Seven, written by Elmer Bernstein.
All the excitement of the old west is expressed with use of a variety of stopped techniques such as mart, table mallet and RT and more. Addition of the melody played on handchimes in some sections adds to the variety of sounds. A good balance of R and stopped techniques throughout will make this a fun piece for your ringers – and have the audience tapping their toes with the rhythm.
