Ding Dong Merrily
A 2-measure, repeat-as-needed, processional opens this versatile piece set loosely on the carol, "Ding, Dong, Merrily on High." Playable by 2 - 5 octaves of handbells, with 2 separate bells used charts for ease, the rhythms are limited to mostly quarters, halves and whole notes with a few dotted rhythms appearing occasionally. A quote from "Angels We Have Heard on High" appears in measure 32 of this 111 measure work. Key of C Major.
