Info

Angels, candles and of course church bells - inevitably the warm anticipation of Christmas rises in each of us. Martin Scharnagl selected the sweet melody of the German Christmas carol Suesser die Glocken nie klingen, a beautiful little easy grade fantasy for wind band.

In Little Sweet Bells he combines a convincing-sounding structure with pedagogical aspects, along with interesting harmonic nuances and a diversified sound field. Soft and fluid, the topics and motifs in the verse and chorus intermesh and are reflected in interludes and passages, intensifying towards the conclusion in a density of sound. True to his principal instrument, Martin Scharnagl spices the score with four possible voicings for the percussion section. In addition to timpani and mallets, which also use tubular bells and triangle, windchimes and cymbals with small and large drums provide different rhythmic characters as well as echoes of bells of different sizes.

In this sense: Let the bells ring, because when are they sweeter than at Christmas time?
