Music Sample: CGB654 Chanson Joyeuse Song of Joy
Description:
Untitled

This spirited original composition is written in ABACA form. Tempo changes, accidentals, plucking, swings, and martellato lifts in the A sections will challenge bass ringers, while treble ringers will enjoy fast-paced eighth notes in alternating 4/4 and 6/8 meters. Modulating into A minor, the B section features a slower, poignant melody accompanied by treble-bell chimes and echoes in the bass. The third section introduces yet another melody as it modulates to A flat major. This section features flowing eighth notes and rich melodic harmonies. "Chanson Joyeuse" brings the listener through a multitude of emotions and surely evokes the passion of life's journey.
