When Morning Gilds the Skies
Starting simply and growing in movement and energy, this setting of When Morning Gilds the Skies is perfect for any time in worship or concert when ringers are in short supply. The opening is simple and hymn-like, evoking the picture of the morning sunrise; while the middle, malleted section adds a lively and vibrant contrast. Special consideration has been given to accommodate the limited number of ringers by giving time to pick up mallets or to pick up an additional bell in the bass line. Scored in Eb Major, this piece is 60 measures.
