Ring Out Wild Bells! (2000)

for choir (S.S.A.), organ and tubular bells

Duration: ca. 5 minutes

Commissioned by La Sainte Union School to celebrate the Millennium

The Tennyson text from "In Memoriam"is set imitatively. It is used to frame a more chordal setting of parts of the "millennium prayer" used by schools in 2000. The organ part is virtuosic in places but also supports the voices throughout.
