O God Our Help In Ages Past
High, middle, and low bells all get a turn at playing the melody in this stately setting of the well-known hymn tune ST. ANNE. With just a few repeating patterns of eighth notes and a minimum of bell changes, this arrangement is an excellent choice for the progressing ensemble. Optional handchimes in the middle section provide contrast, and an optional flute part offers a lively countermelody to the original tune used in the introduction, interlude, and ending sections. 91 measures. Key of Bb Major.
