Notes & Reviews:

Handbell music tradition in Estonia began in 1993 with the foundation of Arsis Handbell Ensemble. The youth groups presented on this release have grown out of Arsis Handbell School, all the players being selected alumni. The older staff of the Youth Ensemble has been performing since 2003, and has toured Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and the USA. The younger one, formed in 2006, has given a number of concerts in Estonia and Finland. The conductor of the ensembles is the artistic director and the founder of Arsis Handbell School maestro Aivar Mäe.
