Description: Brian has crafted a beautifully lyrical and sensitive arrangement of this wonderful hymn. Singing bell and flute solo introduction sets the tone and leads into chords featuring close harmonies which support the simple melody, augmented by passing tones and gentle variations in rhythm. There are a few stopped sounds, echoes and more -- plus melody in handchimes in the 4’s, all perfectly placed for maximum effect. Addition of percussion is the icing on this musical cake. This luscious arrangement will be fulfilling to ring and inspirational to listeners. A ‘must have’ for your library!
