This is a wonderful collection of traditional Canadian folk songs, excellently arranged for handbells and optional handchimes. Each piece can stand alone and range in length from a minute and a half to just over four minutes. Techniques include LV, singing bell, mallets, marts, and thumb damps. These range from lively and jaunty tunes to amazingly beautiful and sensitive melodies, each of them lovely. This set is a perfect ‘staple’ for your handbell repertoire.
