Using all bells or chimes in the 2- or 3-octave set, Beethoven's sturdy tune is cast in G, C and A-flat major, with bell changes eased in comfortably before each new key. Constant eighth-note movement helps to amplify the joy that is displayed in this versatile work that would also be an effective programming choice for massed ringing.
