In Excelsis Deo
The directions for this brilliant original piece read “exuberant with a rock feel” and that says it all. Driving rhythms and percussive effects characterize the beginning and end while a “waltz-like” middle section offers dramatic contrast. Ringers will be challenged by the ever-changing meters and the special techniques used throughout. Begins in the key of D Minor, then modulates to the key of G Minor. 185 measures.
