The latest in contemporary composition with a neo-classical flair; a fugue for cathedral bells and car alarm. This meticulously planned performance occurred mere minutes before Guildford cathedral's carol service, drawing in the momentous crowd of pedestrians strolling by in festive wear and fuzzy hats, in pure awe at such a blissful combination of sound. Success was quickly recognized by critics in the following days, leading to multiple encores and additional performances nearby other unsuspecting sound enthusiasts.
