Glory Be to Jesus
John A. Behnke has transcribed his popular organ prelude of the tune WEM IN LEIDENSTAGEN to an accessible arrangement for handbells. Based on three stanzas of the hymn, the first section is musically straightforward, the second has new harmonies, and the third uses descanting notes and grand harmony. The piece is scored for 3–5 octave handbells and optional 3 octave handchimes. 50 measures. Key of F Major.
