And The Trees Do Moan
"And the Trees Do Moan" is a harmonically intriguing arrangement of a Southern Mountain Folk Song. It is written in c minor, but has many accidentals as well as suggestions for damping certain bells. With a mix of chords and flowing passages, it is 83 measures of listening interest. Two verses of text are printed at the end of the piece. Though specified as a handbell piece, because of the few special techniques required, it is possible that a 5 octave chime choir may be able to ring it.
