My Faith and My Vision
"Be Thou My Vision" and "My Faith Looks Up To Thee" are combined here in a medley of hymn tunes. "Be Thou My Vision" is a traditional ancient Irish melody and "My Faith Looks Up To Thee" is a melody originally written by Olivet and Lowell Mason in 1830. A short introduction leads into the first melody in 3/4 time and Bb Major. The piece then moves into 4/4 with an extended bridge. There are few technical difficulties with the ringing, and this piece is intended for those times when music is needed without weeks of rehearsals to prepare. Bass bells get the melody in places, and ringers and listeners will enjoy the ease and fluid nature of this melody. "My Faith and My Vision" is 60 measures.
