Sheep May Safely Graze composed by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Arranged by Sharon Elery Rogers. For handbells (2-3 octaves) / handchimes (2-3 octaves). Level 2-. Handbell score. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGB688).
Level 2- - This gently flowing music is based on one of Bach's most beautiful, haunting tunes. It is often heard as a choral anthem or a vocal or organ solo. With the constant ringing of solid chords building to a crescendo in the middle section, the use of a few techniques such as TD, mallets, or SK (with vibrato when rung by handchimes) are sprinkled throughout to reach a forte climax. The piece then closes with a more subdued ending.
