I have a new favorite piece. Alex Guebert has been one of my top favorites of handbell composers/arrangers after I played his arrangement of "All Creatures of Our God and King" 3 years ago at Bay View Week of Handbells. Since then he has written great works like Drive, Out of the Silent Planet, Trinity Fanfare, and Resilience, as well as provided stunning arrangements of Ah Holy Jesus, "The Lord's My Shepherd, I'll Not Want", What Child is This, and now "Be Still My Soul". The text of this hymn really comes alive in Alex's musically sensitive setting of the FINLANDIA tune. This piece is very moving, and it is one of my very favorites. I love pieces that are very musically sound while still managing to appeal to my Christian faith.
