Thankful Heart, A
An initial offering in the new “First String Series” (featuring belltree pieces for one octave, more or less), “A Thankful Heart” will fast become a go-to favorite for its lovely theme and its versatility: play it as a simple, poignant belltree solo on 8 bells using either G5-G6 or C6-C7 – or add the piano accompaniment for a fuller presentation. All scores are included in one folio, with the solo portion removable from the piano score. Other performance options might include playing a 4iH duet or allowing 3 or 4 ringer to play the melody line LV, or even on a solo instrument like oboe or flute. The changing meter perfectly reflects the flow of the melody, so it will feel very natural. Instructions for setting up a belltree are included. A special moment in concert, worship, special program, belltree classes – anytime a thoughtful piece is called for. 55 measures. G5-G6 arrangement in the keys of D minor, C Major, then D minor again. C6-C7 arrangement in the keys of G minor, F Major, then G minor again.
