O When Shall I See Jesus
ECSTASY is number 106 in The Sacred Harp, a collection of hymns compiled in 1844, and is quite representative of this Early American music form. Arranger Matthew Prins has accurately adapted this for handbells. It should be played as quickly as is reasonable for the group with attention to clarity and precision in the rhythms while clearly emphasizing the melody. Echoes, mallets, TD and marts add to the excitement. 73 measures. Key of c minor.
