Standin' In the Need of Prayer by Valerie W. Stephenson. For handbells (3-6 octaves) (with optional solo instrument, 2-3 octave handchimes). Level 3. Sheet music. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGB534).
The traditional spiritual is brought to life in this upbeat arrangement. The malleted sections are joyful and energetic, while the contrasting middle section is mournful and reflective. If available, the optional solo instrument will add brilliance and excitement. Flexibility is provided by the inclusion of instrumental parts for clarinet, alto or tenor sax, and flute or violin. This one is sure to have them tapping their feet!
