Eighth-note pulse is the rule and keeps the beat steady and driving throughout all measures of this setting of ST. DENIO. Mallets on tabled bells start the pulse going in the lower bell accompaniment, while the melody speaks out from the treble. After a key change the music relaxes a bit with flowing eighth-note accompaniment in the treble with melody in the middle register. The original material returns with a big flourish in the three ending measures. 76 measures.
