Commissioned for the 2020 Handbell Musicians of America Area 5 Spring Festival in Louisville, Kentucky, this piece starts open and stately before launching with rhythmic energy into a Bluegrass-infused toe-tapper. It brilliantly pairs the Freeman Lewis hymn tune BOURBON (“I Take My Refuge in the Lord”) with a Daniel Teasley hymn of similar assurance. Marts, mallets, plucks, ring-touches, and more are sure to excite your concert audiences and congregations alike. The optional band (fiddle, tambourine, bass, and guitar/mandolin/banjo) may be added in any combination for extra charm!
Note: the Full Score preview shows only the full score, not the separate instrumental parts; the parts for fiddle, tambourine, bass, and guitar/mandolin/banjo are included as pull outs.
