Death

Untoll the Bell

Inspired by the tolling of a bell to end meditation, this anthem asks the choir to reverse the process, to "untoll" the bell so that meditation may continue.  A tour de force for the choir.  This anthem would be appropriate for a sermon about meditation.  SATB, piano, bell in A.  Level of difficulty: High.  Duration: 3 min.
