We Sing of God – Handbells
Organ and handbells majestically introduce this text by Christopher Smart. Composed in traditional hymn-anthem style, there is considerable writing for unison voices as well as SATB, with optional solo voice, followed by the final verse which returns to unison with a jubilant descant. The voice parts are doubled in the organ accompaniment. The handbell part often takes the form of a bell peal, colorfully highlighting the atmosphere of praise.
