This original composition for handbells and percussion will be an exciting addition to the concert or worship repertoire. The "Prologue" begins with a simple melody accompanied by wind chimes, and the singing bell technique. The dance follows in a light and lively 7/8 meter, using triangle, bongos, and tambourine to accentuate the rhythmic patterns. The shimmering melody is accompanied by a malleted bass eighth note pattern; then later, the bass bells play the fully harmonized melody under a light treble ostinato.
