Adagio and Dances for Bells
This bell piece fits well into a concert situation or a church service. Ringers and listeners alike will enjoy the variety of key and style. This piece begins with a stately Adagio in g minor, and then journeys through several dances in minor and major keys; featuring melody in both clefs. The beginning stately mood is altered with happy treble ringing and ends with a return to the opening Adagio. Tempos and ringing styles are up to the abilities of the ringers, or the discretion of the director, and are intended merely as a suggestion. This composition is 60 measures.
