Contemplation on Pleading Savior

Review:      PLEADING SAVIOR was one of the folk hymn tunes included in The Christian Lyre, a hymn collection published by Joshua Leavitt in 1831. This arrangement for handbells includes the lovely melody, featured in both bells and chimes and in treble and bass clefs, enhanced by contrapuntal counter-melodies, and sonorous bass lines. Nicely placed LVs plus occasional echoes, TD's, and mart-lifts provide nice accents.
There are many LV passages and care should be taken to watch for the 'damp' symbol on individual notes. Groups may want to use the DD (delay damp) so the LVs do not become too dense. Optional low chimes (C2-F2) add a wonderful foundation to this work. The addition of an optional rainstick is a nice touch for the beautiful, introspective setting. Begins in F Major, then modulates to G major. 76 measures.
