“Bells of the Cascades has put together a fabulous CD, containing an outstanding representation of some of the very best handbell literature of our day! … thanks for the detailed liner notes — they were fun to read, and very informative.”
—David Harris, director, The Raleigh Ringers, Raleigh, NC

In 2005, Bells of the Cascades released our first full-length CD, All Bells on Deck, which celebrates our long history of hosting workshops on cruise ships, as we present handbell music composed by some of their past cruise clinicians.

“Your CD captured my ear right from the beginning. I am honored that you included two of my compositions … They are both extremely well done, but I am most excited about Requiem. It is so very musical and the oboist and flutist have tones that are absolutely gorgeous. I know I have never heard a better interpretation … congratulations on a beautiful CD, from beginning to end … It has been a real pleasure to hear.”
—William Payn, composer, AGEHR Master Conductor and clinician, professor of music and director of choral studies, Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA

“What a wonderful work you all have done. I love the diversity — you chose so many different styles; and played it all so well. … I love it! … Congratulations to all for a terrific job.”
—Hart Morris, handbell composer, publisher and clinician, minister of music, Asbury UMC, Tulsa, OK
