From arranger Linda Lamb, here is a contemplative setting of the Early American hymn tune CLEANSING FOUNTAIN. The expressive marking "gently" is easily achieved through LV arpeggios, optional handchime harmonizations, and echo effects. Smooth legato ringing and beautifully circling bells contribute as well to the gentle calming effect of the piece.
