On the Wings of Eagles
A reflective introduction ushers in a percussive, forceful piece of dramatic proportions. The driving rhythms of malleted bass notes are non-stop, often joined by higher range bells. The theme is carried in single-line or chorded scorings, sometimes adding chimes. The rhythms are challenging with changing beat values throughout. Ringers will have to remain alert but they will get a thrill when they master this exciting work. Begins in F major, modulates to Bb Major, then to C Major. 141 measures.
