My small bell choir includes a mother and son, Cathy and Colin. This is their third year ringing bells. As is the case with many teenagers Colin caught onto bells quickly. So last winter I suggested he learn to ring solo. About the time he started learning his third, this time more than a hymn tune, his mother said she wanted to learn a duet to play with her son. So I worked up an arrangement of the simplest hymn she suggested.
 
For the first part of the summer I taught Cathy how to solo ring in one room while coaching Colin in his third solo in another room. After he performed it they worked together on the duet. They did an excellent job when they performed it Labor Day weekend. The pastor has now posted a video of their performance.
 
Since then the arrangement, This is My Father’s World, has been accepted for publication by From the Top. They say it is perfect for beginning small ensemble ringers.
 
You can watch it here:
 
 
And eventually buy copies to play it yourself.
