A 15th century English tune is arranged here with a dance-like, renaissance flavor. With minimal bell changes and simple rhythms, it is a very accessible arrangement, and may be conducted in three beats to the measure or in one, depending on the ability of the group. The musical styles are varied throughout, including a lilting dance; a flowing, beautiful section; a canon underscored by singing bells; a bold, chordal section; and an ethereal, transparent ending.
Voicing: 3, 4 or 5 octaves handbells with optional finger cymbals, bongos (or other hand drums)
and chime tree
Arranger: Cathy Moklebust
