This piece is subtitled "War no More" after the lyrics, "Ain't gonna study war no more". If you are inclined, feel free to use "War no More" as the actual title of the arrangement. The arrangement uses 4 octaves of handbells with a few optional bells from a 5 octave set. If you have handchimes, use them in the middle section. It's got the Alberti Bass with some crunchy chords, some kick dancing chords, a little banjo style, etc.. If you hear the tune morph into another famous American song, then you're beginning to get what the piece is all about. By all means, have fun with it. I hope you enjoy it.
