Go Tell It On the Mountain
Malleted handbells on the table, sticks clicking, and a few marts set up the very bouncy rhythmic accompaniment to this popular Christmas spiritual. This is one you will pull out almost every year, a joy for both audience and ringers alike. For most of the duration of the piece, the bass plays a malleted, slightly syncopated rhythm, while the lower treble rings off-beat marted chords against an upper-treble melody. Set in F Major, this composition is 75 measures.
