Octaves: 3-5 octaves handbells; 3-5 octaves handchimes
Composer: Kevin Stewart
AGEHR Level: 4
Description: The opening 12/8 “bluesy” treatment of the chorus is followed by a contrasting straight 4/4 presentation of the verse. Modulating from C major to G major, a contemplative presentation of the verse on handchimes leads to the return of the upbeat chorus. It is an interesting, creative arrangement of this well-known spiritual, appropriate for church or concert venue.
