Canon of Peace
3 to 5-octaves of bells and optional C instrument fit well together in presenting this lovely three-part canon, "Dona nobis pacem". The lines of the canon are rung, plucked, LVed, marted and shook. The dynamic scheme begins on pianissimo grows to an mezzo forte, continues on to forte and then fortissimo before it quickly diminuendos back to pianissimo on the final chord. Set in F Major and C Major, measures total 78.
