Sight Is Glorious (Alternate Key)
"The Sight is Glorious (Alternate Key)" is an arrangement of the Welsh hymn tune BRYN CALFARIA for 8 bells (E5-F6). 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". The arrangement is joyful with melodic ornamentation developing as the piece progresses. This arrangement allows a quartet to ring with mostly standard position assignments (spaces in the left hand and lines in the right hand). An alternate key version is available under the title "The Sight is Glorious" that uses bells F#5-G6. All notes are rung and no tables are needed.
