Be Thou My Vision
Scored in two compatible versions, the traditional Irish tune “Be Thou My Vision” opens with a lively and simple malleted accompaniment. In the second stanza, thumb damps in the upper trebles complement melody highlighted in the mid-range bells. The straightforward rhythms allow developing choirs the opportunity to focus on listening to balance between the melody and the accompanying parts. Scored in G Major, this arrangement is 56 measures.
