Sweet Hour of Prayer
Jason Krug’s flowing arrangement of the well-loved hymn will delight listeners as well as stretch the musicality of your ringers. Eighth note arpeggios underscore a simple treatment of the theme, with both handchimes and handbells providing contrasting timbres. The piece grows in intensity until a final, powerful statement of the theme gives way once more to a peaceful, flowing ending. Key of C Major. 95 measures.
