The twentieth century gospel hymn, "Sweet, Sweet Spirit," is given a gentle treatment for three, four, or five octaves of handbells and two octaves of optional handchimes. Straight ringing and LV portray a peaceful mood. The Piece reaches a climax with the second refrain, then settles back into tranquility, ending peacefully, as it began.
