Peace is the theme of this meditative setting. Groups may choose to present it as a stand-alone bell piece or to enhance it with the addition of a flute and/or a solo singer or SATB voices. The inclusion of two different texts adds to the flexibility. Techniques include mallets or thumb damps and LV. With only a few bell changes, developing choirs will be able to prepare this piece with limited rehearsal time. Using the primary text, the arrangement will be especially appropriate for services of peace.
Voicing: 3, 4 or 5 octaves handbells with optional flute, 3 octaves handchimes, and solo or SATB voice(s)
Composer: Henry Baker / arr. Sandra Eithun
