A musical setting of the large poem by Edgar Allan Poe. Written in four sections, the poem describes bells that tinkle with merriment in the crisp wintry night air, bells ringing with a golden joy at a wedding, bells ringing in alarm at the sight of a raging fire, and the melancholy groaning of the bells as they toll at the hands of ghouls intent on terrorizing the people, who shiver with fright at their sound in the night. Though Poe’s imagery is dark and sometimes frightening, it paints a colorful picture of the kaleidoscopic emotions that may arise from hearing these bringers of tidings good and bad. Duration: 20:00
