2 octave handbells - Level 1

Reproducible Music

Composed by Kathleen L. Wissinger.

This intriguing new children's anthem is all about the camels that the Wise Men will ride. Slow and plodding with an irregular meter that feels very natural, "Ship of the Desert" draws images of readying the camels for a journey (packing water bags and provisions) and of a camel's unique physical attributes to deal with the harsh desert environ…..the tagline: "Ship of the desert on seas made of sand." To highlight the piece, camel bells and a very simple 8-bell or chime ringing part (C5 to D6) showcase 4 or more ringers - taught by rote or using the included bell score. A fully notated piano/director score is included (piano part is optional), as well as a lyric sheet and a unison vocal part – all are reproducible as needed for practice and performance. This piece is part of the "Sing and Ring Series" from ringTrue Handbell Music, offering innovative handbell music in eight categories for successful ringing.
