Procession and Dance
Percussion is an option to add to this original composition for 4 to 5-octaves and includes suspended cymbal, wood block, triangle, windchimes and/or percussion belltree. The "procession" is marked by a dotted eighth-sixteenth melodic motif and weaves in and out of the G major tonality. Its light and bouncy, but becomes even more so as the music moves into the "dance" section where mallets on tabled bells are notated along with mart lifts. The final section is marked "triumphantly" and makes great use of the triplet figure in the accompaniment.
