The cross is one of the most central symbols of the Christian faith, and the tune CRUCIFER, by Sydney Nicholson, is probably the most recognized hymn proclaming its importance. "Lift High the Cross" was written as a processional hymn with stately musical gestures and grand cadences captured here by arranger Cynthia Dobrinski, with abundant energy and triumph in this setting for 3-5 octave handbells.
