Abounding with energy and lilting in spirit, master composer, Cynthia Dobrinski, has crafted this joy-filled original composition for 3-6 octaves of handbells. The inspiration comes from the scriptural reference "the joy of the Lord is your strength." (Neh. 8:10) The 6/8 meter is easily learned and sets a delightful feeling for the opening and closing sections, while contrasted with a hymn-like middle section in 4/4 and minor mode. This is a sure winner that you don't want to miss!
It is 124 measures in length and is scored in C Major.
