As the Offertory, we played "Cantus Invenilus, Youthful Song," winner of the 1999 AGEHR-Area II Young Ringer's Festival Original Composition contest Winner. This piece requires a lot of different bell ringing techniques. The "Martalato Lift" is done by ringing the bell directly into the table pad, thus muffling the sound. The "Echo" is performed by ringing the bell in the air, then lightly tapping in on the table pad to give a "wah, wah" sound. Look and listen for these techniques as you watch the video.
If the music is less than perfect, just remember that we are ringing to praise the Lord!!
