Crown Him with Many Crowns:  Elvey, George J.,Watanabe, Kiyo,GI
Born in Tokyo, Dr. Kiyo Watanabe is the organist at First United Methodist Church in Wichita Falls. A bass-clef-only beginning makes this piece special.
 
Cumulonimbus:  Prins, Matthew,,GI
"Cumulonimbus - a vertically developed cumulus cloud, often capped by an anvil shaped cloud. Also called a thunderstorm cloud, it is frequently accompanied by heavy showers, lightning, thunder, and sometimes hail or gusty winds." If this definition doesn't give you an idea of what this original composition holds, then visit Kansas in tornado season!
 
Jesus Calls Us O'er the Tumult:  Jude, William Herbert,Lamb, Linda R.,GI
This version is not your grandmother's bell arrangement! Jazzy rhythms, malleted chords, and pulsing rhythms accompany the "altered" melody of the old hymn tune GALILEE by William Herbert Jude. Fresh and different, the work is equally effective in representing Christ's voice calling out to a contemporary world.
 
Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho:  Spiritual,Mitchell, Kirtsy,GI
Arranger Kirsty Mithchell writes, "I know there are a dozen arrangements of "'Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho'" but this one gets really jazzy and is a lot of fun to ring!" We couldn't agree more!
 
Metanoia:  Roberts, Philip L.,,GI
Composed for the handbell choir at the Fluvanna Correctional Center of Women in Virginia, this original work interweaves three musical themes.
 
My Heart Rejoices:  Hakes, Derek K.,,GI
Dedicated to the "Joyful Rhythms", this 2 or 3 octave piece is anything but tame.
 
Nowell Sing We:  English Carol,Nelson, Susan T.,GI
This wonderful English carol from the fifteenth century is exquisitely arranged for handbells and chimes by Susan (Nelson) Sylvester.
 
O Holy Night:  Adam, Adolph,Eithun, Sandra,GI
This level one piece offers high musical quality and yet remains easily accessible.
 
On Eagle's Wings:  Joncas, Michael,Helman, Michael,GI
This timeless and beautiful contemporary classic has been expertly arranged by Michael Helman.
 
O Rest in the Lord from Elijah:  Mendelssohn, Felix,Merrett, Fred A.,GI
'Elijah' immediately established itself as second only to Handel's 'Messiah' in the public's affections. It received many performances in the years just after its composition, and its enormous popularity continued throughout the nineteenth century and beyond.
 
Savior Shepherd Jesus:  Various,Hascall, Nancy,GI
Commissioned by the Bell Heirs of Caldwell, Idaho, in honor of Ruth Whitley, their director, arranger Nancy Hascall artfully and reverently combines two well-known hymn tunes.
 
Sing Out Earth and Skies:  Haugen, Marty,Eithun, Sandra,GI
Sandra Eithun has arranged this contemporary hit by Marty Haugen into an ethereal and uplifting musical experience.
 
Soundscape:  Dare, John C.,,GI
This is an original composition for handbells that is easily accessible yet sounds grand and glorious.
 
Steal Away to Jesus:  Spiritual,Stephenson, Valerie W.,GI
From Valerie Stephenson's own words - "Frankly, I had a hard time getting a grasp on this tune. It took me a while.... But, once done, it was wonderful fun and now, ... I love it! I think you will too."
 
Sunrise Celebration:  Childers, Brian,,GI
Get those ringers up for Easter sunrise service and surprise the faithful with this bright original composition for bells and optional handchimes (2 octaves). Bouncy, syncopated rhythms open and close the piece with a calmer, slower middle section that features the chimes. This joyful piece works well in any worship service or happy celebration.
 
Then Jesus Said:  Burroughs, Bob,,GI
Each movement in this suite focuses on one of Jesus' sayings. Each has descriptive music and narration to enhance the scripture verse on which the movement is based. The titles are: "Ask, My Sheep Hear My Voice, You Call Me Master, Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled," and "I Will Ask the Father."
 
Trumpet Tune:  Vivaldi, Antonio,Bobrowski, Leonard,GI
This is not the "trumpet tune" one usually recalls. Nevertheless, Leonard Bobrowski has handily arranged Antonio Vivaldi's "Trumpet Tune" into a well-crafted Level 2 piece for 2 octave ensembles.
 
Two Hymn Settings:  Various,Geschke, Susan E.,GI
These two hymn arrangements by Susan Geschke are ideal for beginning ringers. The hymn tunes are: "How Firm a Foundation" and "Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee".
 
When We Gather:  Wissinger, Kathleen,,GI
Commissioned to celebrate 20 years of handbells at Trinity Lutheran Church and for Marilyn Converse, composer Kathleen Wissinger drew inspiration from Matthew 18:20.
