Gigue on Forest Green
This energetic piece features a dance-like 12/8 meter from beginning to end. There are some 2 against 3 rhythms which make the music exciting and fun to play. The hymn tune enters with the pick-up to measure 17 and continues to measure 32. The last phrase of the melody recurs in measure 48 and carries the piece to a dynamic ending. Give special attention to the dynamics. Some dynamic changes are sudden and some are subtle. Enjoy this exceptional opportunity for ringers to achieve musical excellence in ringing.
