How Great Thou Art
Considered to be one of the greatest texts and tunes from the 20th century, this classic hymn gives rise to the greatness that it invokes in worshiping God, our Creator. Joel Raney has set it for 3-5 octaves handbells with optional 3-5 octave handchimes, used both melodically and harmonically to add remarkable interest. The masterful transitions and modulations provide awe-inspired moments of grandeur that are worthy of this hymn of praise. This 92-measure piece is scored in G Major.
