A Martha Lynn Thompson transcription of The Thieving Magpie by Gioachino Rossini.   Composed in 1817, the overture to this fun two-act opera sets a military tone about the mystery of a stolen spoon, actually taken by the bird.   It’s said that Rossini was locked in a room and he dropped pages of music for the copyists from the window.  With wonderful malleted bass and high notes triplets, Martha Lynn Thompson sets this famous Level 4+ transcription for an advanced group.  For 5-6 octaves of handbells.  JAB037.
