  • May 19, 2011 A Masterpiece for the Handbell Idiom

    A well crafted masterpiece for the Handbell idiom from Fred Gramann. Entitled, "Change Ring Prelude On Divinium Mysterium," this is a take on the 13th Century Plainsong Chant "Divine Mystery" (most commonly known as Of The Fathers Love Begotten." Opening calmly and quietly in 3/4 meter, the texture then...

    builds and thickens as the tune weaves its way throughout the registers propelled by changing meters (mixes of 3/4's and 4/4s with 7/8's and 5/8's.) This unmeterical feel goes with the Chant, as flowing eight note passages invokes the sights and sounds of running streams of water. At Level 3+, this is an excellent piece for Worship that will leave your audiences spellbounded.

  • August 18, 2008 Captures the Sound of the Tower Bells

    This piece transcends the elegant simplicity of plainsong and carries both ringers and audience to heights of cathedral bells in a most elegant and impassioned style. Through effective L.V. techniques, fluid change ringing patterns and fluctuating meter, it transforms table bound handbells to instruments capturing the majesty and power...

    of tower bells. I have played this piece as a ringer in a mass festival setting and directed it with my concert handbell choir --- both experiences captured the essence of this piece. I appreciate how this piece was able to overcome the shortcomings of our sanctuary's acoustics (a very dead space)---- not an easy task for any arrangement.
