Be Thou My Vision
Opening with the ethereal sound of singing bells and suspended malleted bells, this setting takes listeners and performers on a musical journey. The inspirational original ‘B’ section originates from the melody itself, and leads to the return of the melody, for a final stanza, this time accompanied by optional arpeggiated chimes. The composition concludes just as it started, completing the musical journey with the heavenly sounds of the singing bell. 113 measures. Key of C Major.
