Canto de Esperanza:  Argentine Folk Song,Nelson, Susan T.,GI
Syncopated rhythms and staccato techniques coupled with a variety of other instruments make this a concert crowd pleaser.
 
Children Go Where I Send Thee:  Spirituals,Lamb, Linda R.,GI
Take two scoops of syncopation; add shakes, marts, mallets, sprinkle in some ring touches and what do you get? You get this high-spirited Gospel-style arrangement from Linda Lamb!
 
Come All Ye Shepherds:  Bohemian Carol,Ward, Robert J.,GI
Bob Ward dedicated this piece to his mother. It is a fine choice for Christmas concerts and worship during the Christmas season.
 
Covenant Suite:  McAninch, Diane,,GI
Well suited for Lent, the first movement of this original work offers introspective harmonies while the second brings hope through the flowing melody.
 
Fantasie on There Is a Balm in Gilead:  Spiritual,Prins, Matthew,GI
Generally speaking, a fantasie is a composition where the "free flight of fancy" prevails over normal conventions of form and style.
 
Gather Us In:  Haugen, Marty,Roberts, Philip L.,GI
Excellent for worship, concerts or festivals, this uplifting and delightful arrangement will make a lasting impression on both ringers and listeners.
 
In Majesty Resplendent:  Wilson, Malcolm C.,,GI
Scottish composer Malcolm C. Wilson was commissioned by the Atlanta Concert Ringers, St. Mark United Methodist Church, Atlanta, Georgia to create a handbell piece with organ and optional brass. The bell part acts as a full score.
 
In the Garden:  Miles, Austin,Ingram, Bill,GI
While perfectly suited for handbells alone, Bill Ingram's inspiring piece is richly enhanced when chimes are used.
 
Journey Home:  McKlveen, Paul A.,,GI
GIA is honored to publish the 2003 Bells of the Sound Composition Contest Award Winner! Paul McKlveen's original work is full of splendor and majesty.
 
Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence:  Picardy,Campbell, Rosemary Corrigan,GI
This traditional French tune (PICARDY) is set here in an ethereal mood with lots of opportunity for visual as well as aural interpretation. The plaintive melody is accompanied by open 5ths that sometimes tie across the barline for a sustained effect. This title includes a good work out on the softer dynamics.
 
Let All Things Now Living:  Traditional Welsh Melody,Burroughs, Bob,GI
ASHGROVE never sounded better as it does from virtuoso Bob Burroughs. This festive piece inspires us with full, powerful chords throughout.
 
Masters in This Hall:  Traditional French,Waldron, Thomas M.,GI
Thomas Waldron brings us a solid score full of harmonic colors adding new life to this traditional French carol.
 
Morning Thoughts:  Kay, K.,,GI
Peaceful, expressive, and thoughtful all describe the mood of this original work. The rhythms are simple in 3/4 meter. Ringers will grow in their skills of understanding ties across the barlines, cresecendo and diminuendo, varying dynamics, and playing softly. 65 measures in length.
 
Nowell Celebration:  Burroughs, Bob,,GI
"The First Nowell" is taken to new heights with full, glorious chords and delightful syncopation.
 
Passion Suite:  Various,Ingram, Bill,GI
I. Calvary II. Were You There? and III. He Lives make up the trio of arrangements in this suite depicting the final days of Christ's life and His resurrection from the dead. Narration is included with the first and third suite and adds to the drama. Each movement may be played as a stand alone piece.
 
Stille, Stille, Stille:  Traditional Austrian Carol,Moats, William E.,GI
William Moats crafted this well-known carol into a great choice for developing ringers.
 
Sweet Hour of Prayer:  Bradbury, William B.,Lamb, Linda R.,GI
Mallets on suspended bells and optional 3 octaves of chimes lend their special peace to the tranquil mood of this hymn arrangement. An opening C4 bell tolls the hour and should ring as close to the hour of performance as possible. Easy rhythms along with these effects make a simple piece seem complex and rich.
 
Two Early American Hymn Tunes:  Various,Roberts, P.,GI
NETTLETON and WARRENTION are the two tunes most commonly associated with the hymn text, "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing". Here, in 48 measures with repeats, they are contrasted by special articulations and light and full accompaniments. Idea for an introduction to hymn singing or as an interlude as well as a solo piece.
 
Two Lyrical Moments:  Eithun, Sandra,,GI
This suite includes two exquisite songs for the price of one! The first movement is tender and meditative while the second is more lilting in character.
 
Up from the Grave He Arose:  Lowry, Robert S.,Dare, John C.,GI
This arrangement is a straight-forward presentation of the Robert Lowry tune CHRIST AROSE. A good workout on contrast is inherently built into the text and music. The beginning, which would be the verse, is somber and march-like. The second section, or chorus, explodes with triumph and dotted rhythms. The verse and chorus are set twice with an ending for a short 47 measures.
 
Wondrous Cross:  Mason, Lowell,Childers, Brian,GI
Haunting and moving, this piece is also demanding and ringers will be challenged with many bell and chime changes.
