Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
Based on the Southern Harmony tune JEFFERSON, this Advent arrangement creates a quiet but energetic, hurried feeling. Techniques used are pluck, thumb damp or mallets, and martellato. The two editions are compatible for massed ringing. The reproducible percussion parts are printed on the back page of the score, and include a muffled drum, played with yarn mallets. Set in c minor, this piece is 58 measures.
