This rhythmic selection in 5/4 meter abounds with vitality and joy. Featuring a malleted bass ostinato, the upper bells resound an alleluia-like refrain incorporating TDs, marts, and RTs. The contrasting middle section answers with an energetic "tolling" pattern. Though there are few bell changes, the rhythmic diversity makes this an excellent piece for any group seeking a challenge. It is sure to be a favorite with congregation and ensemble like.
Voicing: 3 octaves handbells
