CGB935 Springs of Joy (Waltz in C)
Music Sample: CGB935 Sample Music

The memorable melody of Springs of Joy consists of 8th note arpeggios, supported by waltz bass and intruiging harmonic shifts. The "B" section offers a new key, an equally-compelling melody in the bass, and thumb-damped chords in the treble. Reminiscent of a Chopin waltz, the open scoring of Springs of Joy will challenge your ringers to play the melody smoothly, and it is perfect as an uplifting moment in worship or a sprightly addition to concert or festival repertoire. A smaller ensemble (8 ringers on 3 oct. or 9 ringers on 5 oct.) might welcome the challenge of ringing “paired 8th notes†(a performance concept taught by both Kathleen Wissinger and Carlos J. Avila Báez at conferences); instructions for this method are included in the score. This light-hearted, original piece is dedicated to Carlos for his inspiration.
