CGB753 Just a Closer Walk
Music Sample: CGB753 Just a Closer Walk
Description:
Untitled

This spirited arrangement includes a great walking bass line for the bass bell ringers, along with gyros, shakes, and lots of malleting for all. The final stanza includes some "sticking" as in a soft shoe dance, with the mallets both playfully striking the foam and clicking together. In a short, solemn middle section, "In the Garden" is rung on handchimes, both providing contrast and reminding us of the varying emotions of life's journey and of God's presence through them all. This arrangement will be a great choice for worship, concert, and festival use.

 

Voicing: 3, 4, or 5 octaves handbells with optional 3 octaves handchimes and percussion

 

Composer/Arranger: Valerie W. Stephenson
