Four Easy Songs for Four Ringers
This Level 1 collection for 4 ringers (D5–D6) provides performance material for relatively inexperienced ringers. The easy rhythms and rhythmic texture of The Faithful Shepherd provide security in numbers. Cornerstone is in 3/4 meter and is mostly rhythmic with an exposed melody over dotted half notes in the middle section. Midnight Riders and A Walk through the Park have several measures of rhythmic independence. Two of the selections offer alternate titles for use at Christmas.
