Ring to the Lord a New Song
This jubilant original composition will delight worshippers and concert-goers with its cheerful melody and spirited pace. The melody moves from major to minor, bass and treble, then concludes with a fiery return to the major key and an energetic, powerful ending. Compatible editions for 2 or 3, or 4, 5, or 6 octaves make this piece a perfect choice for handbell festivals. With this work, Cathy honors her childhood handbell director and mentor, Barbara Berntson. 105 measures. Keys of G Major and c minor.
