Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
Dean has remained true to the style of Wyeth’s traditional American Hymn Tune in this engaging arrangement for handbells and handchimes. Delicate suspended bells in the introduction set the stage for the melody which is introduced by the rich tone of the bass handchimes (C4-A4). Smoothly rung bass clef eighth notes underlay the treble melodies and all builds to a full-toned yet nuanced ending. Begins in C Major, then modulates to D Major. 57 measures.
