Spyglass Cracking the Case
Brian has crafted an utterly delightful original work for the handbell soloist… particularly a soloist who enjoys integrating some drama in the performance! The melody is engaging and clever use of stopped techniques such as RT on the second of a pair of tied notes accentuates the rhythms. Mart, mart-lift, gyro and Sk add to the visual fun and accent the swing feel – with straight rhythms providing the contrast. The piano accompaniment with its walking bass line, legato sections, and some fabulous triplet passages is the icing on this musical cake! 78 measures.
