Alleluia the Strife is O'er
The hymn tune VICTORY, by Giovanni da Palestrina, is scored fully for 2 octaves of bells with simple rhythms, but a quicker tempo (quarter = 112). It consists of mostly chordal texture with a few special techniques. Except for a crescendo near the end, the piece is rung at forte. A total of 74 measures, this work is arranged in G Major.
