The Southern Harmony collection, first published by William Walker in 1835, compiled many unaccompanied ‘folk hymns’ used primarily throughout the South. Brian has crafted a creative and interesting arrangement of one of these folk hymns for bells and chimes. In the beginning, a drone-like sound supports the traditional melody which is first played with chimes and then bells. Marts and table malleted notes add a ‘march’ feel… as though the music is marching to the Promised Land. There is a lyrical mid-section and well-placed tempo and voicing variations which add to the interest.
