I'M JUST A POOR WAYFARING STRANGER (Handbell)
Arr. Tammy Waldrop
This arrangement invokes the style of American Mountain and Bluegrass music. The opening malleted bass line mimics the plucked strings of the acoustic bass, the treble thumb-damped chords resemble the "chop" of the mandolin, and the melody sings forth as a violin in a mournful low register. This is arranged for 3-5 octaves with optional 3 octave handchimes.
