"The Mysterious Stranger" is ideal for 6 or 7 ringers. A slow tempo and a thin bass line make the bass clef part feasible for one ringer and very easy for two ringers. The melody moves throughout the two-octave range. Although completely workable for G4 – to F6, the optional C4 and F4 add richness. Bell changes for E5 and B5 plus many 8th notes put it at Level 2. A total of 55 measures, this piece is written in c minor.
