This innovative suite for 2 to 5 octaves offers ringers three upbeat pieces, carefully scored for successive learning experiences: 1) Adoration, a bold processional with simple chords; 2) Leap of Faith, a short happy piece in which everyone gets to mart; and 3) Joyful Praise, a memorable waltz melody played in all ranges with echoes and thumb damps. Unison exercises are included to help teach new skills and rhythms. Suite Praise (subtitled Playground Suite with Follow the Leader, Hopscotch and Red Rover) will become a perennial favorite in worship, school, concert and festival settings.
Voicing: 2, 3, 4, or 5 octaves handbells with optional C#8, D8
