40 Days in the Desert


Peters, William, ringTrue

Haunting and heroic at the same time, “40 Days in the Desert” captures struggle and victory within the same breath. Written in single pulse 3/4 time, the strong melodic lines are supported by even stronger chords in c minor, with shifts in harmonics to G Major that brighten the mood briefly: Perfect for Lent, Passion Week, or any meditative moment in worship. When using the subtitle “The Ghost of Success” for secular concert and festival, the audience might be reminded of an Anime theme, which is not surprising since the composer, William Peters, was in 7th grade when he wrote this piece. He asked his handbell teacher (Kath Wissinger) to look at it and see if it would work for bells. With some very minor editing, William’s score showcases a new creative talent in handbells and beyond.

Hope and healing, claimed by choosing love as a response to violence, is the focus of “Let Love Be Our Voice.” Written shortly after angry and violent public demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia (the composer lives an hour away) – and edited in the wake of the Las Vegas massed shooting – this heartfelt original hymn touches on the many ways we can respond positively to evil in the world when facing devastating news or our questioning children and even those responsible for the mayhem. And finally, Jesus gives us the answer we don’t always want to hear: “Love your enemies.” A calm but rhythmic accompaniment introduces the easy-to-learn tune and conversational text, ending with the refrain each time: “Let love be our choice. Let love be our voice.”

Veni Emmanuel


Traditional, arr. Wissinger, Kathleen, ringTrue

Emmanuel (15th century, France), perfectly embodying that special feeling of wonder as we anticipate the coming of the Christ Child. Set in two ranges – for 2 octaves or 3/5 octaves – each version includes options for Bell Tree solo (G5-G6 or C6-C7) or a ringing soloist (or 2, 3 or 4 ringers) on a separate set of chimes (these are the easiest options for the 2 oct. version, as ringing parts for chimes and bells often cross voices.)
