Octaves: 3-5 octaves handbells (optional drum)
Composer: Lee J. Afdahl
AGEHR Level: III
Description: This piece was composed to complete a trilogy based on Isaiah 55. The first two, For as the Rain Comes Down and And All Shall Clap are now followed by Go Out In Joy. The intense opening section is enhanced with the use of an optional drum (tuned or untuned) which doubles the bass bells' rhythmic pattern. A slower melodic section, with an alternating bass mallet and ringing pattern, segues back to a brief restatement of the opening joyful theme.
