Review: Irish melody SLANE begins gently with great expressiveness. The piece focuses on the pure, rung sound of bells and contains no special techniques. Lots of chordal ringing is contrasted by flowing passages. There are some triplet rhythmic figures and key changes. It is 82 measures and is set in G Major and Ab Major.
