I recently wrote a little article about English Change Ringing, English Country Dance, and Mystical Minimalism.
Before you read it, please listen to this recording of church bells in Oxford. It's supposed to be in the article, and somehow isn't, yet is essential to an understanding of my comparison between the bells and the music of Glass, Pärt, and Moody.
After you've listened to the bells, you can read the article. To experience the full effect, please listen to/watch the recordings that are mentioned therein. I'd love your responses here. Thanks!
