Fantasy on Terra Beata
This piece opens with the majestic sounds of a landscape such as the American West. A Native American-inspired melody enters and is joined by the hymn “This is My Father’s World” and later combines with “The King of Love My Shepherd Is.” After a climax of the main theme, a quiet epilogue ensues, presenting fragments of the theme as a peaceful and dreamy memory. For 3-7 octave of bells with optional 3-5 octave handchimes and flute, this 105-measure title is scored in g minor and Bb Major. The reproducible flute part is included.
