I Wonder As I Wander
This familiar Appalachian carol receives lush treatment for handbells, with an optional flute or recorder part that is truly delightful. Ringers will experience pacing eighth notes with sixteenth note turns and a moderate number of accidentals. The thoughtful character and slow (quarter = 63) tempo create a good opportunity to work on musical expression. Set in g minor, this piece is 52 measures in length.
