Arise My Soul Arise


Finnish Folk Song, arr. Boatright, Linda, From the Top Music

Johan Kahl was a Swedish hymn poet, having written over 50 hymns before he tragically drowned at age of 25. His poem, Arise, my soul, Arise! Stretch forth to things eternal …” was set to a Finnish folk tune and only in the last half-century, included in several hymnals and choral arrangements. Linda Boatright has taken this simple tune and created a beautiful, sophisticated arrangement for handbells.

California Here I Come


Various, arr. Tucker, Sondra K., From the Top Music

It seems as if this song should be the ‘State Song’ of California, but several attempts at doing that have failed. However, it has been used so frequently in a wide variety of settings – from cartoons (Bugs Bunny as Rabbitson Crusoe) to I Love Lucy Episodes, as background to PBS’s California State travelogue series as well as in many movies. It even was played on the USS Yorktown as it steamed toward the Battle of Midway in WW2, and as President and Mrs. Reagan left Washington at the end of his presidential terms.

This original and very expressive musical ‘tone poem’ will inspire listeners to visualize the miraculous development of a butterfly.

In the sections described as “Awakening” and “Emerging” one can hear the first gentle attempts of moving its wings until this beautiful being finally takes full flight. “Taking Flight” features a lovely handchime melody with 16th-note patterns reflecting the fluttering of wings and glorious soaring until it gracefully and gently lands.

Scherzo


Beethoven, Ludwig van , arr. Newell, Frances, From the Top Music

Symphony No. 7 – Op. 92 by Beethoven was deemed by Beethoven himself to be one of his best works. It was immediately quite popular and movements from it were often requested as encores. Frances has nicely captured the orchestral feel of this 3rd movement with the lively Scherzo scored in 3/4 time; however, the Spirito pulse dances along in "one".
