Thanksgiving (Simple Gifts)
"For seedtime and harvest and the good will of men, We give thanks to God the Father once again..." so begins the text of the anthem by John Ness Beck based on an early American tune. It is this anthem that the corresponding bell folio is set to, albeit one whole-step lower. It may stand alone or accompany the vocal octavo. Can use handbell arrangement to accompany choral anthem (BP1237).
