You've Got to Ring Those Bells . Galesburg, Regisfef'MaJj/jGajgsbjjffl*. ||_[,___Saturday, June 9, 1 973 I Choirs Combine Music, Goodwill By ALICE BROCKMAN (Staff Writer) It may not bo fun to polish all those bronze bells, but the bell choir members know their Ambassador's trips this month will more than make up for it. The Trinity Lutheran Church High School Bell Choir, under the direction of Miss — - — -~ — Myrna Andersen, leaves for a nine-day tour through Nebraska and South Dakota June 15 with ten bell ringers, 37 bells and ten sets of spotless while gloves. Those gloves are very important since they prevent tarnish, and keep the bells from having to be polished so often.

Snap Wrist Learning to play the bells is not difficult. The ringer simply must learn to give a good, clean "snap" to his wrist as he brings the bell forward. What is hard, according to Miss Andersen, is learning to play the bells in time with the music, and to play them simultaneously with the other ringers. Djnamics is another problem too It J-> hard for the beginner to distinguish bei u l II i soft. Since only ten ringers play 37 bells, i ntj i rave to play three or four bells.

(Photos by Steve Stout) takes practice and co-ordination. But the rewards are worth al! the practice, because bell ringers produce a music, sweet and charming, like no other you have ever heard. And the music for the bells is varied, too. Miss Andersen's choir will perform hymns, spirituals, anthems, light and popular songs, and classics, on their tour, including "Brian's Song," Kum Ba Yah," and a captivating presentation of "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies." The Westminster Bell Choir begins its concerts with an English Chiming Tune rung every hour by "Big Ben" in London's Parliament Building. Beethoven's "Ode to Joy," "Ah, Holy —Jesus," are on program as in an "Etude," which demonstrates the various types of sounds the bells make, including bells played like mallets, plucked, tolled, trcmalandoes, and rung normally. "Battle Hymn of the Republic," arranged by Mr. Musolf, concludes the program. Use Many Materials Bells have been known since the beginning of mankind. Primitive men fashioned them of clay, wood, metal, shell, pods, nuts, and stone to hang around the necks of domestic animals and for use at festivals and ceremonies. The use of hand bells, however, to play tunes is relatively recent. In the 17th century, they were used as a simple and convenient means of practicing change ringing in the huge towers of London. Finally, people began to play them just for their own sound, and now they are used around the world in bell choirs. Bells have an interesting folklore built up around them. They have been the object of many superstitions, the basis of legends, and sometimes a form of comfort. The harvest bell used to call laborers to the fields, and bells were used in early Rome to signify, bathing times. Often their mystical sound was attributed to good spirits and so developed the worldwide custom of wearing bells ar protection from evil spirits and from bodily harm. Today, their use as a musical instrument has added a new dimension to church services 'and concerts. Woman's World Today...
