Written for 4 to 7 octave handbell choir and optional 4 to 7 octaves of handchimes. level 4. This original work based upon the opening of Psalm 130 (“Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice.”) is a haunting, emotional work for the ensemble looking to showcase its delicate musicality. Opening with ample, harsh dissonance, it gives way to a hopeful, rising theme that returns throughout the piece. Flowing sixteenth note accompaniments propel the piece toward its glorious climax, which gives way to the opening material once more. An impressive and awe-inspiring choice for an emotional moment in worship or concert.
