This short and simple piano piece, "The Chapel Bells", shows a little town where the bells of its chapel would ring daily. The right hand would play the accompaniment -- composed of thirds, while the left hand would play the melody, imitating the sounds of the chapel bells. Composed in E minor, set to a speed of 70 quarter notes a minute, contained 30 bars, and composed in 2011, an average performance of this piece would take no more than 85 seconds. The composer admitted that the piece has some relativity to Charles-Valentin Alkan's "Esquisse Op. 63 No. 4 'Les Cloches in G minor'", as he sees this as an inspiration for him to compose this piece.
