The work Dzwony św. Katarzyny [Bells of St. Catherine] was written in 2023 specially for the carillon at St. Catherine’s church in Gdańsk.
I owe my great fondness for the carillon to the instrument in the Rockefeller Memorial Chapel at Chicago University, where for more than 20 years I listened to the carillonists’ concerts every day on my way to teach. Bells of St. Catherine was inspired by a beautiful sequence by St. Hildegard von Bingen (1098–1179) entitled O Ignis Spiritus [O fire of the Spirit]. This work comprises two contrasting movements and a coda. The first movement is of a motoric, dynamic character, while the second, based on St. Hildegard’s sequence, is more static and meditative.
