The term 'passacaglia' refers to a set of variations over a repeating bass line, commonly in triple meter. This original work by Fred Gramann explores a variety of handbell textures and techniques, building from a simple melody to more complex patterns. Precise, delicate ringing is required, with pluck and swings to help build momentum. Being built on a foundational bass line, an alternative title for worship might be Built on the Sure Foundation. It was composed for the Ontario Guild of English Handbell Ringers Festival in Peterborough, Ontario in May, 2015.
