Unlike usual settings of this text, this creative setting evokes awe and mystery by using an original, almost chant-like melody anchored by piano or four handbells (within a two octave set). The bells comment intermittently then provide pitch support for the singers in way that adds to the other-worldly mood.
23 measures in the key of Gb Major. Duration: 2:30
Reproducible handbell part is included in the octavo.
