Call of the Water
This compelling piece evokes dawn at the shoreline and the promise of a day on the water – gentle pastel ripples at first, then fresh air and invigorating spray, and finally soft sunset on the water at the end. Subtitled “Living Water,” “Call of the Water” is ideal for worship – baptism, commissioning, dedication, meditation, offertory – as well as for concerts and Festivals. Singing bell, finger cymbals and wind chimes add a mystic aura to the sweet melody.

(A5-C7(D7)) alternate bell set, Belltree and/or C instrument is also included. Dedicated to Kipp Willnauer’s beloved father, who was an avid fisherman, “Call of the Water” is an enchanting journey for ringers and audience alike. 113 measures.
