Composer's Notes:
Order the choral part as a printed score or PDF

Order the handbell part as a printed score or PDF.

Score Errata:
page 6 (I/m26): Basses should be one octave higher.
page 9 (I/m39, m41, m47, m49): replace all A's with G's.
Mvt. III: pulse as indicated is quarter note.
page 14 (III/m27): the meter should be 9/4 as it is in the previous measure and in the following two measures.
page 9 (IV/m39): the first alto note should be a B, spelling a B major triad. So the sequence would be: D major (sop), B major (alto), Eb major (tenor), G major (bass).
page 7 (III/m15): tenor, D natural should be E natural.
pave 7 (III/m16): soprano, C# should be D natural.
