King of Glory Comes
The traditional Israeli melody PROMISED ONE is arranged by Hart Morris for 3–5 octave handbells and optional 3–4 octave handchimes, with optional B-flat clarinet and string bass. The key may be minor, but this tune is joyful! The composer conveys this joy as well as energy through the use of the clarinet and bass. A slower middle section brings a change of pace, and the use of optional handchimes sets an even more mellow tone. The final stanza returns to the original upbeat feel for a delightful finale. This piece is great for Advent, Palm Sunday, End Times, and Christ the King Sunday. 101 measures. Key of c minor.
