Otley, 3-5 octaves, level 3, 1999, Lorenz, 20/1180L
Commissioned by the Otley Bell Orchestra, Otley, West Yorkshire.  There are three motifs.  One, the stately refrain, alludes to the classical style of Thomas Chippendale (1718-79), English furniture designer born in Otley.  The next provides a carnival feeling as Otley is a market town with an annual carnival.  The last theme is hymn-like in reference to the association of the area with John Wesley (1703-91), evangelist, founder of Methodism and publisher of the first hymn book in the USA.
