2-3 octave handbell choir, optional 2-3 octaves of handchimes, level 2. Arranged by Jason Krug. Delicate malleted bells and handchimes bookend this arrangement suitable for any time during the Lenten season, or for a special Good Friday service. From a solemn, reflective opening through a powerful statement of the well-known hymn and back once more to a delicate, prayerful ending, listeners get to contemplate all aspects of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. Available in compatible 2-3 and 3-5 octave versions, this selection can be performed by groups large and small, or even by multiple ensembles together.
