Il Est Ne Calypso (He Is Born)
The Calypso beat carried by the malleted bass bells energizes this entertaining carol arrangement. The syncopated rhythm is constant enough to become easy to learn. There are no bell changes, so the most challenging aspects of this piece are the rhythms and the tempo of quarter = 80. Once learned, however, ringers should enjoy every minute of it! 94 measures long, it is scored in G Major.
