"Wide Missouri" is a Level 1 composition scored for 2 or 3 octaves of handbells or handchimes. There are no bell changes or special techniques. As an aid to ringers and directors, the melody and other notes of equal importance are easy to identify because they are printed in red. For use in schools this title could be coordinated with Geography or with the Lewis and Clark expedition. Some churches might relate the title of this big river to a theme of God’s work in nature. 40 measures. Key of C Major.
