Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho composed by Traditional Spiritual. Arranged by Susan E. Geschke. For 2 octave handbell choir. 2-Octave Gem Series. Level 2. Handbell score. 8 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.2621).
This rollicking spiritual will both charm and delight with its easy swing, lively melody, and energetic plucks. A slower, meditative middle section with lots of LVs provides contrast. Advanced groups may increase the tempo for more excitement culminating in a rousing ending as the notes plunge emphatically to convey a glorious sense of "the walls tumblin' down!" This is the latest addition to Susan Geschke's popular and useful Two-Octave Gem Series.
