Song of Hope
This original handbell composition by Cynthia Dobrinski is another fine example of the uplifting style for which she is famous. The compelling melodies and flowing lines create an atmosphere of "hope" and "assurance," grounded with major tonalities and few harmonic changes. Handbell choirs will enjoy the beauty of this ballad and its accessibility. Key of A Major, measures 17-24 modulate to F Major, then the piece returns to A Major. 85 measures.
