Sight Is Glorious
"The Sight is Glorious" is an arrangement of the Welsh hymn tune BRYN CALFARIA for 8 bells (F#5-G6). It may be rung by two people playing 4-in-Hand or four people in a small ensemble with 2 bells each. An excellent piece for Ascension, this tune is often associated with the hymns "Look Ye Saints, the Sight is Glorious" and "Lord, Enthroned in Heavenly Splendor". This arrangement is joyful with melodic ornamentation developing as the piece progresses. It is available in an alternate key for those who prefer to play the piece with more standard handbell assignment positions (most spaces in the left hand and lines in the right hand) under the title "The Sight is Glorious (Alternate Key)". All notes are rung and no tables are needed.
