My Paddle's Keen and Bright - I


“My Paddle’s Keen and Bright - I” is based on a beloved “campfire” song, written by Canadian Margaret Embers McGee to honor the First Nations people and their love of the waterways. Embodying the essence of a native folk tune motif, the driving rhythms and haunting melody will make it one of your ringers’ favorite pieces.

Fully scored for 3-5 octaves, this L2+ piece is a “Split-Level” piece which allows new or beginning ringers to easily assimilate into an established group – and allows multiple-levels/grades to perform together. In this case, 3 ringing positions are somewhat easier (B4C5, D5E5 and F5G5) at Level 1+; and a special extracted score for these ringers is included, if needed, to support them in quickly learning new skills and succeeding in ringing. Most of the small 16th-note motifs fall within ringing positions, making them much easier to master – a goal of the “Class ring” series from ringTrue.

Compatible with MRE7004R “My Paddle’s Keen and Bright - II”, which includes parts for unison voices, reproducible L1 chords, guitar, Orff instruments and percussion. Written for Sound Wave youth handbell ensemble, directed by Janet Nordstrand, Vancouver, Canada. Ideal for concert, school and festival use.
