If a group of genetically-enhanced super-genius chimpanzees ever got a chance to write a bell piece, it would probably sound a lot like this. An anything-but-staid malletted passacaglia figure sets the scene for some serious eighth note monkeying in the upper register. Watch those accen ts, especially in the canon! The choir gets a chance to perform all four of the staccato techniques. And if that weren't enoung, an isolated six-bar section in 7/8 lets the bass try their hand at mixed meter - and it's even playable! Explore your inner primate.
