Jazz Waltz on Praise to the Lord
The hymn tune LOBE DEN HERREN takes on a surprisingly new twist in this swingy jazz arrangement, featuring improv-style solos written out for the flute, bass, and drums. The solos are included in the handbell part, but they may be omitted or played only by the other instruments if an easier arrangement is desired. Jazz articulations are achieved in the handbell part through extensive use of RT, accents, and grace notes. The string bass parts should be played pizzicato. Measures total 194.
