The tune is based on ATHLONE, a traditional Irish melody. Five verses allow for various choral textures, all easily handled by a balanced ensemble. A similar approach is given to the three other settings. The handbell parts are more involved than a bell or two rung here and there, but could be performed by members of most choral ensembles. Eight to ten bells are used for each piece; the aggregate range for the collection is E5 to B6.

8-10 handbells - 4 sets of parts.
