Various bell techniques are featured in this setting of the familiar hymn, including LVs, swings, thumb damps, plucks and shakes. Both treble and bass ringers have an opportunity to ring the melody. Soulful original material introduces the tune and reappears throughout the piece. Appropriate at any time of the year, this flowing setting will create a prayerful atmosphere for worship and reflection.
