Just a Closer Walk With TheeTraditional/arr. John A. Behnke - JAB Publishing
This jazzy little setting of the well known hymn begins with a catchy opening which draws us into the rhythmic melody. Your bass ringers groove to their malleted bass accompaniment. The middle section provides quiet contrast with use of handchimes. Then comes a surprise key change and everyone rocking through the melody one last time before a Louis Armstrong “O Ya” ending. Ringers and audience alike will both love it.
