Contemplation and Dance on KINGSFOLD
The "contemplation" section of this arrangement evokes the sedate mood of the hymn texts with which it is associated; the random ringing, singing bells and mellow tone of the handchimes all contribute to the soothing effect. The "dance" section introduces a more celebratory mood, with a quicker tempo, featuring use of mallets, Ring Touch and Martellato techniques plus optional hand drum. In addition, a Flute part which enhances both sections, may be added. Key of F Major. 97 measures. Alternate ending extends the piece to 104 measures.
