Fanfare and Hymn
A brilliant flurry of percussive chords opens and closes this exciting original piece. Rhythms are quick but easily managed with mallets. The body of the hymn portion begins with a solid introduction that leads into the tune itself, beginning with simple scoring that evolves into expressive chords played by optional handchimes. The contrasts in mood will hold everyone's interest throughout. This piece is 87 measures long and is scored in C Major.
