On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand
This spirited composition on the traditional American melody "The Promised Land" can be used as a good teaching tool as it employs multiple ringing techniques (TD, Pl or mallets, LV, martellato and shakes). The beginning forte section, written in a minor key (f minor), is a lively contrast to the slower middle section in a major key (F Major), using bells, chimes and later adding mallets. The piece climaxes to an exciting conclusion with ponderous minor chords. It is 50 measures long.
