How Good Lord to Be Here (Alternate Key)
How Good, Lord, To Be Here (Alternate Key) is an 8-Bell handbell arrangement of the hymn tune POTSDAM utilizing bells F5-F6 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 arrangement allows a quartet to ring with standard position assignments (spaces in the left hand and lines in the right hand). An alternate key version is available under the title How Good, Lord, To Be Here that uses bells G5-G6. All notes are rung and no tables are needed.
