Ding Dong Merrily On High
Playful bell motives abound in this joyful arrangement of a favorite Christmas bell tune. An optional flute or C instrument creates a wonderful dialogue with the bells. A bass and midrange two-measure motif accompanies the treble clef melody in the first section, followed by a slower midsection where the midrange takes the melody. The third part returns to the lively style of the first section, with the flute and bells antiphonally playing the melody. Set in F Major, this piece is 79 measures.
