Sandra Eithun and Michael W. Joy have created the Pathways to Musical Ringing series in order to offer music that teaches a specific musical element (in this volume, Articulations), encourages success, and fosters growth in musicianship. These pieces have been carefully written and/or selected from folk, classical and sacred repertoire in order to spotlight particular techniques and articulations that are unique to handbells. All pieces in the collection are appropriate for church, school or festival settings. As an additional benefit for beginning ensembles, all of the selections have no page turns, with the exception of "Berceuse".
