Nearer My God to Thee
Will Gross has once again given a favorite hymn (tune: BETHANY) fresh and creative treatment. It begins with a calm, introspective setting that soon segues into a rhythmic pattern, set by ringers striking the pattern on the foam, book and/or stand. The development continues to include malleted bass line supporting the melody and counter-melody in the treble. This will be an excellent addition to your group’s repertoire. 120 measures. Begins in C Major, then modulates to D Major.
