Song of Hope, A
This original composition takes its inspiration from Psalm 71:14 "I will hope continually and will praise Thee yet more and more." It was written in celebration of the completion of a five-octave bell set. Marked Andante, the main melodic motif is in fanfare style and is taken through several registers. A Cantabile section provides a nice contrast before returning to the original material. An interesting combination of shake and mart-lift techniques leads to a fortississimo ending.
