Worthy of Worship
Bill Ingram’s flowing setting of this great worship hymn has an optional part for handchimes in the 3 octave range. During the first stanza, the chimes, used internally, state the melody while handbells provide accompaniment above and below. During the second stanza, the handchimes accompany the bells which take the melody. With few bells changes, this 89-measure arrangement is full of interest and comes together quickly with minimum rehearsal. It is scored in F Major.
