The most familiar of Gershwin's piano preludes (No. 2 from Three Preludes) sounds both jazzy and rich on handbells. Ringers will love learning it, and listeners will find it both interesting and beautiful. The middle section gives the melody to the bass ringers. The use of the optional handchimes provides some unusual color combinations.

Commissioned in memory of Carolyn Tenery, the bright opening and closing themes of this original composition are filled with syncopation, expressing the colorful and happy nature of Carolyn's personality. Sections using mallets, echoes, martellatos and shakes are employed, as Carolyn was a percussionist who loved techniques on handbells. The contrasting middle section is the "blue" period, and is best played on handchimes if possible. This work is suitable for worship, festivals and concerts. The alternate title, The Colors of Love, may be used in secular settings.

Ringers of all ages will share in the infectious delight of this creative arrangement. "Joyful, Joyful!" celebrates the well-known "Hymn to Joy" by offering many different possibilities. It is all malleted by handbells, or all rung by handchimes. The "sticking" (clicking together of the mallets) is meant to imitate a band drumline, with each ringer having two mallets. Experimentation is welcomed in this simple but exciting rendition. The two editions are compatible for massed ringing.

This arrangement of the Zingarelli motet for mixed chorus is effectively transcribed for handbells and optional handchimes by Martha Lynn Thompson. The slow, somber opening section, in F minor, is very effective when rung entirely on handchimes. At measure 22 the key changes to F major, the tempo changes to "Allegro guisto," and if handchimes were used for the opening section, the handbells are used from here to the end of the piece. To aid in interpretation of the music, the choral text is provided on page 8.
