Sheet Music: Score
Merri Berri Waltz / Becky Llewellyn.
by Becky Llewellyn (2017)
After getting this commission from Lyn Fuller, the inspiration for this waltz came from a four-day camping trip near Berri, South Australia at the River Murray National Park. The birds were exquisite, especially the dawn chorus and the gracefully gliding pelicans on the river. Becky spent time after that trip transcribing their bell-like calls for the carillon bells. Australia has many bell-sounding birds, but in Canberra and in Sydney, people are lucky enough to hear the substantial carillon bell sets from their towers. In the case of the Merri Berri Waltz, it is a celebration of the incredible sonic legacy of our Australian eco-system.
