Holy Lord God of Hosts
Karen Roth's original work combines handbells, keyboard, and two vocal choir lines (trebles & basses or mixed) to present a stately and majestic offering for worship or concert. The entire text repeats the two phrases, "Holy, holy, holy Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Your glory!" in harmonic and imitative textures. The handbell part is simple and repetitive until the final section, where it grows stonger and more involved. Measures total 59.
