For the Beauty of the Earth
This joyful hymn is intended to bring happiness at any time of year. The engaging melody is enhanced by an exciting all-malleted accompaniment. It is not only a great teaching piece for youth or adults for a variety of malleting techniques, but an exciting festival piece as well. With the alternate title, “As with Gladness, Men of Old” it is also appropriate for Epiphany. Scored in F Major, this piece is 45 measures in length.
