When Jesus Wept the Falling Tear
Low bass handchimes ringing the melody accompanied by high treble handbells ringing a gentle eighth note pattern open this poignant, contemplative setting. The second verse takes on a fugue pattern, introducing the melody in four voices in various ranges of the handbells. The concluding verse uses full chords and rich harmonies to complete this meditative and moving arrangement. This 68-measure arrangement is scored in g minor and c minor.
