I have posted on Score Exchange, an arrangement of “On Jordan’s Bank the Baptist’s Cry“. It is the Hymn of the Day for Second Sunday in Advent. In 2019, that will be December 8. This is an arrangement for three octaves of handbells and organ. Full score and parts for the bells and for the organ are available.
On my Handbell Hymn Arrangements page, I now also indicate which of the hymns will be Hymn of the Day within the upcoming six months. Look for the label ++H.o.t.D. 6++. I hope this helps in your planning music for your handbell choir.

WordPress recently provided a tool that tells the blog writer what files you readers have been downloading. Wow! That’s what I said when I saw how many of my handbell arrangements have been downloaded since this past June. I’m very honored that so many of you are using them in your ministry! That has inspired me to get back to the project I started two years ago – posting arrangements of the Hymn of Day.
So, I recently posted on Score Exchange, an arrangement of “I Know My Faith Is Founded“. It is the Hymn of the Day for Proper 22 in Year C of the Three Year Lectionary. In 2019, that will be October 6. May you and your congregation be blessed in your worship of our Lord and Savior.
Today I posted two arrangements on Score Exchange.
- “Hail, Thou Once Despised Jesus” is the Hymn of the Day for Proper 17 in Year A of the Three Year Lectionary. In 2017, that will be September 3.
- “My soul, now praise your Maker” is the Hymn of the Day for Proper 18 in Year A of the Three Year Lectionary. In 2017, that will be September 10.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Three Year Lectionary, you can learn about it and get a calendar of it at www.yaag.org.
