The full spectrum of emotions experienced during the journey from Lent through Easter is exquisitely reflected in six artistically and masterfully crafted hymn-based works. Each of the titles directly reflects the hymn text that it calls to mind, creating an appropriate and authentic musical vehicle for contemplation or celebration. The handbell parts in the book are reproducible, and most of the titles have multiple applications that are listed on the contents page. Highly recommended! Titles include: In the Cross of Christ I Glory; O Dearest Jesus; O Sacred Head, Now Wounded; Were You There; Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee and Hail Thee, Festival Day.
