Faith in God Medley composed by Various---it's a medley. Arranged by G. R. Adkison. For Handbell Choir. Christian, Sacred. Early Intermediate. Sheet Music Single. Published by Praising God Publications (S0.15525).
"This arrangement is an 86 measure, 4-5 octave medley of the Christian hymns: â€œLeaning on the Everlasting Armsâ€, â€œFaith of Our Fathersâ€, â€œBlessed Assurance, Jesus is Mineâ€, and ""O God, Our Help in Ages Pastâ€. The unifying theme, as the title suggests, is faith in God. All of it is fairly upbeat, except for the first verse of â€œO God, Our Help in Ages Pastâ€. That verse is slow and plain, as a setup for contrast with the verse to follow. That verse makes heavy use of an eighth-note descant line that causes it to seem significantly faster than it otherwise would. That last verse is already twice as fast as the previous verse, so there is quite a contrast between the two verses, not only in apparent tempo, but also in volume. In spite of this descant, I believe that this is probably a level 2 arrangement in difficulty. The ""dotted-eighth/sixteenth patterns have been changed to ""even eighths"", in order to make it easier for handbell choirs of modest ability to play, and no special techniques are used (other than a shake on the end), to make it easier than it would otherwise be. The audio clip uses a piano voice (patch) but otherwise suffices to demonstrate how the arrangement is generally intended to sound, as that audio file is a direct output of the arranging/composing program used.".
