Octaves: 3 - 5 octaves handbells
Composer: Dillon Ekle
Description: Here is a bright and exciting arrangement of this familiar Advent hymn: Prepare the way, O Zion! Your Christ is drawing near! Based on a Swedish melody Bereden väg för Herran dated prior to 1560, Dillon has written this in 8/8 interspersed with 2/4 and 6/8, and has made excellent use of stopped sounds and rhythmic accents. The melody dances along from beginning to end. An excellent work for your Advent worship!
