Best Gift III and IV


Hear the drone of the bagpipes! This original Celtic jig for Bell Tree, 4iH duet or small ensemble will delight your ringers and audience from the first note of the lilting original melody and the unusual turns it takes. The piano plays open fifth intervals to support the melody. Add a bodhran or hand drum for some sparkle. Great for any celebratory moment in worship, concert or school presentation. Subtitled “Rejoice and Be Merry,” this particular folio - The Best Gift 3 & 4 (RE560634) - contains the solo versions: Score #3 for Bell Tree solo (Med. Difficulty), 4iH duet or small ensemble (or even a C instrument – like a fiddle!) with piano accompaniment - and Score #4 - a bonus piano solo (Level 4/5) because it’s so much fun to play! A complementary folio features this flexible piece in full choir arrangements as well – all compatible: The Best Gift I & II (RE822112): Score #1 for 3 or 5/6 octaves with a single melody line in the treble and malleting down to C4 (the lower 5th octave, ringable by one person, is added in the final reprise) while Score #2 requires a fully staffed 5+ oct. ensemble, in which, half-way through the piece, the melody is played in octaves and the accompaniment expands to the full 5+ oct. bass range, mallets and all. In both cases, the bass mallet pattern involves 8th note pairs and triplets all played with a lilt and which, if a L2 bass part is desired, may be simplified to 8th note pairs throughout.
