You Are God We Praise You
"You are God: we raise you. You are the Lord: we acclaim you." These words are the opening text of this Ambrosian chant in unison accompanied by a 5-note handbell carillon (freely rung). The bells required are C5, E5, G5, A5 and C6. They begin the piece and are to be rung evenly throughout, not to be rhythmically coordinated with the voices. A Cantor begins and the alternates with the assembly, SA and TB.
