About Bells in the Rain
This setting of Elinor Wylie's emotional poem concentrates two key emotive elements: the bells and the rain, both of which are important concepts throughout the music. Constant falling motifs in the accompaniment work alongside the soprano's carefully crafted lines as the rain storm gains strength and later fades as the piece progresses. Bell-like clusters punctuate the texture, while the music continues with a slightly uneasy edge as the listener is left to contemplate where the tale will turn to next.
