Minimal Rondeau

This original work is very creative and a lovely example of 20th century ‘classical’ repertoire. It is mostly Rung throughout and features expressive dynamics. In lieu of using LV, it is suggested groups use Delay Damp (DD) technique to create the expressive legato phrases throughout. The marimba is the ‘constant’ in this score and together, bells and marimba create an amazing fresh, new work your group and audience will enjoy!

Jerusalem

The hymn "Jerusalem" is sung so extensively in England that it is sometimes referred to as England's second national anthem. The poem 'And did those feet in ancient time' was written by English poet William Blake circa 1808, was set to music by Sir Hubert Parry in 1917, and later orchestrated by Edward Elgar. Thus it is no wonder that Fred Gramann conceived combining Elgar's "Nimrod" from the Enigma Variations with Parry's "Jerusalem" in this new work for handbells.

Nollirac Carillon

Nollirac Carillon! What an interesting title … is there a cathedral called ‘Nollirac’ somewhere, one wonders? Well – only in the fertile and creative mind of Fred Gramann! Fred’s program notes read: The word nollirac is carillon spelled backwards. This is reflected in the music by certain motifs being first heard backwards (in reverse order like the word nollirac) and then forward (like the word carillon).

All Saints Fantasy

This favorite hymn tune composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams in 1906, was entitled, SINE NOMINE, which literally translates as “without name,” which was the custom as far back as the Renaissance when a tune was original and not a new setting of an existing song. This exciting arrangement is truly a ‘fantasy’ on this hymn tune since the melody line is not exactly what we are all used to hearing – yet is still very familiar and engaging.

A Ni Sogoma

This work has an engaging melody shared by handbells and handchimes and featuring malleted notes and mart-lifts with nicely-placed LV passages. Dynamics and tempo changes add to the engaging rhythmic effect of this original work. The composer writes: "With all that happened in our country this summer (2020), my thought for this piece was to put to use increased reflection on racial awareness, and incorporate djembe rhythms out of West Africa. I found it notable that, in Mali, using music to call people to gather had the connotation of gathering in harmony and peace.

Music on the Theme of Love

Brian created this lovely original piece based on the word: LOVE. He assigned musical notes to each letter: L = E O = D V = A E = B It begins with bass Singing Bells ringing an ethereal A9(sus4) chord while handchimes ring the musical theme: E - D - A - B (LOVE). That sets the tone and he develops it quite nicely as melody shifts to the bells with lower chimes in the accompaniment.

Musings

This original music for handbells is dedicated to Fred A. Merrett, Canadian handbell composer and director who was highly regarded throughout the handbell community. The dedication reads in part: His music and leadership will endure nationally and internationally along with a sincere appreciation of his love for handbells. Betty has penned the following description of this beautiful and sensitive work: Musings features a poignant cantabile melody in both minor and major keys. This melody is contrasted with a mysterioso section offering moments of nostalgia and distress. Overall Musings explores thoughts of contemplation, reflection, wishing, yearning, anxiety, wistfulness, joy, delight, bliss, pondering and meditation.

No Shadow of Turning With Thee

FAITHFULNESS is a much-loved hymn tune which was created by William Runyan to fit with a poem written by his young Methodist minister friend, Thomas Chisholm. Chisholm had health issues throughout his life and was challenged in many ways, but he wrote: " God has given me many wonderful displays of his providing care, which have filled me with astonishing gratefulness." Brian created this unique lyrical setting in honor of his father and the love and appreciation he feels for his dad is apparent in the music.
