Taste of New Orleans
"A TASTE OF NEW ORLEANS" is a fun, swingin' medley of three spirituals most commonly associated with the great jazz traditions of the French Quarter and the great musical heritage of "The Big Easy"! Offered menu style because of multiple performance options, this clever medley of spirituals will delight ringers and audiences. It can be performed by handbells alone or with instrumental embellishments or as a sing-along, with choir or audience participating. The composer provides instructions for all options. Ringers will experience multiple techniques, swing rhythms and many accidentals shifts throughout, but all in great fun. The titles included are "Swing Low Sweet Chariot, Just a Closer Walk with Thee, and When the Saints Go Marching In." 82 measures in length, it is scored in G Major and C Major.
