"Connect 6" is a versatile original work for handbells. The piece begins and ends with a joyous rhythmic idea built on the malleted bass line with a lyrical and melodic middle section. The piece shifts between 6/8 in 2 and 6/8 in 3 as well as 9/8 and 3/4 time. Originally conceived as a sextet, "Connect 6" may be used in multiple ways: (1) as a 5 octave handbell ensemble; (2) as a 5 octave handbell sextet; (3) as a 3 octave handbell ensemble with Piano; or (4) as a 3 octave handbell quintet with Piano. All performance possibilities also include optional 3 octaves of handchimes. The alternate title "Joyously Resound" is provided.
