CGB793 Holy Manna (A Merry Mallet Melody)
Music Sample: CGB793 Music Sample
Description:

Bursting with energy, this arrangement is played entirely with mallets but remains  rhythmically easy with only a sprinkling of eighth notes.  In addition to malleting, ringers click their mallets together for added percussive joy.  The suggested tempo gives the piece real vitality, but it can also be effectively played a bit slower.  The piece may be also rung entirely on handchimes, substituting a percussion instrument for the mallet clicks. The alternate title "A Merry Mallet Melody" makes this setting an excellent choice for secular, sacred, or festival use.

Voicing: 3 or 5 octaves handbells or handchimes

Composer/Arranger: Susan E. Geschke

Season: General

Level: 2
