I have embedded this internationally well-known melody in a harmonic room of bells which is rendered by the male voices.
To enhance the feeling of two independent entities, the melody and the bell ostinato are performed in different metres.
Tension increases in the second verse when the melody is performed in a canon but dissipates at the end of the piece.(Marten Jansson)

My music is my own and I have never tried to be original. That has always been my motto and I have only tried to use music to express all the feelings which life has to offer. This has led people to describe my music as 'so sad that it sounds like birds who have lost their wings' but also as 'the happiest classical music that we have ever heard'.
My compositions are almost all sacred. They express not only my own faith but also my appreciation and respect for the timeless texts that have been used for centuries and centuries.
