When In Our Music God Is Glorified
"When In Our Music God Is Glorified" is an arrangement of the tune ENGELBERG that may be played by handbells alone, or in conjunction with organ, brass, timpani, SATB choir, and congregation (reproducible congregational part in Full Score). This glorious festival hymn arrangement begins with a fanfare introduction, followed by a straightforward setting of the first verse, sung in unison. The second verse features the choir in 4 parts, accompanied by the bells and organ only. The brass and timpani join in on the third verse, which features a malleted or plucked bass line in the handbells, creating a march-like feel. A fanfare interlude precedes the majestic fourth verse, which features a soaring soprano descant, and a brief choral “Amen” concludes the arrangement. This hymn arrangement is perfect for worship, concert, or festival use. It is 66 measures in length and is scored in F Major.
