Rejoice Ye Pure In Heart
After a short, fanfare introduction, Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart presents the hymn tune MARION in three settings: 1. traditional 4/4 hymn form, 2. a more meditative setting in 3/4 time, with the melody in mid range, played by optional handchimes, and 3. a stately setting in 4/4 time with a flowing bass bells accompaniment. The first setting of the hymn tune could also be used, with or without treble instrument, to accompany congregational singing of this hymn. The two editions are written so they may be played together in festivals and other multiple bell choir situations. Instrument part included. Begins in G Major, then modulates to Bb Major, with hints of G Minor. 71 measures.
