Lift High the Cross
The five stanzas of this hymn have each been set using a different combination of instruments to enhance the congregational singing. The handbells (C5 - G6) do not enter until stanza 5, where they ring half note rhythms using the shake technique. A good opportunity for young ringers to be a part of something big. Brass ensemble consists of 2 trumpets, 2 trombones and timpani.
