This recording is of a reading of this piece by the Wesleyan University Orchestra, conducted by Aaron Siegel during their annual Symphonic Workshop in 2005.
This piece takes it’s title from a stage direction in a 15th century French mystery play about Joan of Arc called Le Mystère du Siège d’Orléans. The play is one of only two secular plays of the era and is one of very few with stage directions that include musical cues. The title means “And the bells of the town ring without ceasing during the attack.”
Instrumentation of the piece is piccolo, flute 1 & 2, clarinet 1 & 2, horn 1 & 2, trumpet 1 & 2, trombone, tuba, percussion (tubular bells, xylophone, glockenspiel, tom-tom), violins, viola, cello, double bass. Contact me for a score, if interested.
