Dorian Epic


Written during the siege of Hurricane Dorian along the Atlantic coast of the U.S. (Spring 2019), “Dorian Epic” is a strong, engaging Level 1 piece offering hands-on experience playing in “Dorian mode” (with lowered 3rd and 7th tones in the major scale). The versatile folio includes four settings of this original piece, spanning 2-5 octaves, to fit your ensemble perfectly every time you use it: “A1” for 2 octaves and “A2” for 4 octaves (these two are compatible); and, in a different key, “B1” for 3 octaves and “B2” for 5 octaves (these two are compatible). All of the composer’s school groups (from beginners to advanced) loved playing this intriguing piece. Teaching ideas on introducing Dorian mode are noted. Appropriate for classroom, concert, worship (with the sub-title “A Test of Faith” or another of your choice) and beginning-level festivals, “Dorian Epic” also coordinates with Section F in “Square One,” a method for teaching note reading and ringing (RE3013R). To see more pedagogically-focused pieces featuring music worthy of both school classroom teaching time (and productive rehearsals!) and performance, check the “Class ring” series from ringTrue Handbell Music at (Music Search Assistant, select the “Series” at the bottom of the page). The audio clip is played by the 2019-2020 5th graders at Redeemer Classical School, Harrisonburg, Va. Kathleen Wissinger, teacher.
