Here is a new original piece, perfect for worship or concert, based on a lyrical and lovely melody. Kurt has included something for everyone – beginning with singing bells underlying the suspended bells establishing the melody and including the controlled diminuendo technique on the sus note chord before it segues into the main theme. Tambourine and clarinet soon join in and a variety of techniques including mart, mart-lift, Sk, and LV are so nicely placed, this piece will almost play itself! The combined tones and textures of all these instruments are quite pleasant and interesting. This main theme ends with an amazing surprise section followed by handchimes ringing the melody and wind chimes added for an ethereal effect. There are opportunities for amazing musical interpretation throughout and the addition of timpani leads to an unexpected ending. This is definitely a ‘must-have’ for your Level 3 – and beyond – group.
