"I Sing the Mighty Power of God" is a 51 measure, 4-5 octave arrangement that has three contrasting verses based on the original hymn. The first verse is fairly standard, except that some chord structures are used throughout the arrangement that are not the standard chords used in the original hymn. After the first verse (at the normal tempo) the tempo slows considerably, for a maestoso effect, and the very lowest 4 octave bells are used for the melody line. At the same time, the chord structure here, is provided by treble clef bells, from the bottom of the treble clef, through the highest note of the 5 octave range. This approach alternates with passages that are up to 5-octave unison passages. The early parts of the third verse are heavy on descant lines---sometimes descant “chords” instead of single-note descants, with a couple of bass runs in this verse, as well. There is a tag at the end---the last musical phrase is repeated with fuller chords at triple forte. There is a very non-standard chord, instead of the normal five-seven chord, right before the last chord. There is a brief shake on the first half of the last melody chord. Where there are notes in the 4 octave range, that will not work well if played by a 4 octave choir, it is clearly noted that these notes are for the 5 octave choirs, only. The audio clip is in a piano voice (patch) but suffices to demonstrate how the arrangement is generally meant to sound.
