How Good Lord to Be Here
How Good, Lord, To Be Here is an 8-Bell handbell arrangement of the hymn tune POTSDAM utilizing bells G5-G6 by Lauran Delancy. It may be rung with two people in 4-in-Hand or four people in a small ensemble with 2 bells each. An excellent piece for Transfiguration, this piece utilizes triplets, eighth notes, and the swing technique to paint a sense of growing awe. This piece is available in an alternate key for those who prefer to play the piece with more standard handbell assignment positions (spaces in the left hand and lines in the right hand) under the title How Good, Lord, To Be Here (Alternate Key). All notes are rung and no tables are needed.
