I’ve told Handbells how the melody of “Sinfonia”, one of the pieces we are learning, has been used in a variety of other settings.  Here is my favorite:  a video clip from the 2005 movie, Pride and Prejudice. If you haven’t read the book, it is a classic, written by Jane Austen in the 19th century.  It is one of my favorite stories; I read it for the first time when I was in high school.  In this clip, the melody is played, for most of the scene, by a solo violin.

Here is a link to hear “Wayfarin’ Stranger”.  The challenge with this song is to keep a smooth, steady melodic line while the piano plays a very rhythmic, jazzy accompaniment.
