Prepare the Royal Highway
Based on the hymn tune BEREDEN VAG FOR HERRAN, arranger Lee Afdahl has incorporated two instances of random ring in the introduction. The melody enters in a single unison line and then is joined at the octave. The texture builds as the piece moves along. Ringers will be challenged to work on linear thinking as they reach the section with running eighth-note passages. Mart-lifts, shakes and LV technique are used.
