Easter Carillon is characterized by successive shifts of tonalities one third apart (B-flat to D or F to A-flat). During the course of the piece, suggestions of the traditional carillon tune appear in the organ while the brass and timpani carry on with the beginning music. If used as an Easter prelude, the quiet ending prepares the way for the joyfulness of the first hymn. Reproducible pages for instruments are included.
