This original work has a lyrical, introspective melody featured in the handchimes in the beginning, supported by lovely LV in the bells – representing ‘sorrow.’  It segues to a rhythmic style with the bells ringing the melody – clearly imparting joy! A mix of LV and R, a few mart-lifts and echoes add interest throughout. This was used in worship at St. Olaf College this summer.
