I Want to Walk As a Child of the Light
The latest addition to the “Flexible Favorites” series for bells and optional instruments, Kathleen Thomerson’s popular hymn tune HOUSTON has been treated simply and delicately with minimal bell changes and techniques, making this a very accessible arrangement. A short original melody comprises the introduction, interludes, and ending. In the second stanza, the upper treble bells are played with mallets, while the hymn tune is played by the lower treble and bass. The optional C or Bb instrument makes a lovely addition, and since 2-3 and 3-5 octave editions are available, this 95-measure piece is perfect for festival use as well as for worship. It is scored in G Major.
