Dance of the Heart
Composer Linda Lamb has taken her title imagery a step further in marking contrasting sections "Tripping lightly," "Waltzing and dreaming" and "Stepping high!" The beginning melody is light of heart with a slight twist of intervals that resembles Celtic folk songs. The echo technique is used most effectively in the "dreaming" section and mallets on tabled bells adds to the "high-stepping" passages. Measures total 77.
