Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence
The setting of this trio creates a calm, spiritual ambiance. The melody is shared among three Bell Trees during the first verse with counter melodies woven into the harmony. The second verse begins with a rhythmic variation of the melody before returning to the traditional pattern. The 74-measure piece begins in 4/4, moves to 6/4 and 6/8 before concluding in 4/4. It is set in e minor.
