CGB1063 Vivamus!

Music Sample: CGB1063.pdf

With a title drawn from the enthusiastic Latin exclamation meaning "let us live!," this energetic piece was commissioned by the Mid-Carolinas Handbell Festival in Charlotte, North Carolina. It celebrates the festival's longevity of 22 years; and its founder, Bob Ivey. Abundant use of special techniques provides perfect teaching moments for single choirs or festival ringers; and a clever incorporation of melodic retrograde provides a bit of a "scherzo" (challenge your ringers to find it!). This joyful, lively piece is accessible and fun: with a couple of key changes but limited accidentals throughout, it provides a recipe for all ringers to be active as well as successful!


Voicing: 3, 4, 5 or 6 octaves handbells with optional 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 octaves handchimes
