Level 4 · Bells and heavy metal! An orchestral anvil, a real anvil, a portion of a railroad rail, or an old brake drum and a hammer are an integral part of this piece, which is both fun to ring and to hear. The anvil part can be specifically assigned to one player, or one or more of the ringers can play it. Carefully observe the dynamics and accent marks in the bell score. Although Moderato is a lively tempo, it's a polka, not a race!
