Coming Home A Journey
This original work is composed in sections with each section having a distinct meaning. The first section recounts memories or reflections of the comforts of home. This is followed by a journey back to home where we meet challenges and persevere. The next section illustrates experiencing loss and striving to resolve stressful issues. Ultimately, the music brings us to a place of comfort and solace and furnishes us the joy of finding a place to belong. Treble ringers have an option for a more challenging part within the piece. Many handbell techniques are employed enabling the ringers to showcase their talent and, while challenging, it is sure to inspire and uplift the listeners. G-flat Major is a key that is not common in the handbell repertoire; however, this unique tonal color offers an inviting, warm sound as we go back to a place we call home. 93 measures.
