(Trick or Treat)Kathleen Wissinger - Ring True
Click to review
Your ringers will enjoy every antic in "Shenanigans" 8th note half-steps, surprising harmonic shifts with lots of accidentals, sneaky marts and mart lifts. Two non-compatible scores are included in the folio: "A" for 3-5 oct. and "B" for 2 or 2 octaves (G4-G6, opt. C4-F4). This flexibility allows as few as 5 or 6 ringers and as many as 13 ringers to participate in this fun L2 piece. A welcome addition to ringTrue's "Class ring series" - showcasing pedagogically-focused pieces - worthy of classroom attention and concert performance. Teacher and composer Kathleen Wissinger writes these for her classes, according to the current need - such as Campana Sonos, Laudare, Hornpipe and Dance, Playground Suite (Suite Praise), Bronze Fanfare, Providence, Accolade, Matinata and Jubilare. "Shenanigans" features 8th notes in paired positions (universally in "A" and some of the time in "B") in which the ringer owns both 8th notes within a beat (if they ring space note in left hand/line note in right hand) making them much easier to play accurately. The piece therefore sounds (and the score appears) much more complex than it really is. While set in C minor, a blank key signature is purposefully used in "A" to give all ringers the same experience with accidentals. Rondo form encourages quick learning (The A section repeats unchanged), and an optional repeat allows for a longer performance time. A Unison Exercise for Bell Weaving and Accidentals is included, reproducible for each ringer to mark their own part or for take-home practice. "Shenanigans," with its quirky melody line and ever-shifting harmonies, will become a favorite of your students in concerts, contests and festivals. Use the sub-titles "Trick or Treat" for a seasonal program or "Trial and Temptation" in a sacred worship setting.
