Music Sample: CGB1046.pdf

Two familiar spiritual hymns are combined to form this arrangement, which illustrates various portions of the texts referring to the underground railroad. Singing bell, or random ringing or random malleting, and plucking or malleting are the only special handbell techniques used, along with the optional use of handchimes. A slow, ethereal beginning and ending enclose the various styles explored in between. This arrangement will be useable at any time during the year, but especially during times of memorial and strength-seeking.


Voicing:  3, 4 or 5 octaves handbells with optional 3, 4 or 5 octaves handchimes
