Yesterday during the luncheon hour, I worked out the bell allocation among five ringers for my arrangement of My Lord, What a Morning.

I need yet to do the same for the Easter Stikheron, and for Welcome, Happy Morning.

The latter is a tune by Sir Arthur Seymour Sullivan (yes, that Sullivan) which I find a bit cloying as a congregational hymn, but well suited to handbell arrangement, an environment which lends it a pleasant, music box character.

Part of our choir rehearsal last night was an initial read-through of My Lord, What a Morning; went quite well, I thought.

And I am electrified at the thought of Plotting's première tomorrow. Tomorrow!
