Octaves: 3, 4 or 5 octaves handbells; 1 octave handchimes (C5-A5)
Arranger: Robin Benton
Description: Here is a sensitive arrangement of this familiar African-American spiritual. The occasional addition of handchimes playing the melody plus a nicely crafted modulation from C major to Eb major adds to its charm. It is ‘rung’ throughout with a few echoes added for interest. The entire work is lyrical and should be played with great feeling.
