Aria ~ Contemplation:    This movement from Caleb Onstad’s Trinity trilogy actually started as a solo piano sheet coming from a series of compositions written that were based on pastel colors. Caleb expanded it for bells as it fit very well musically and thematically. Written in F Lydian, this piece has a very warm, open, celestial kind of sound. Use of Silver Melody Bells and chimes accentuate all of the ethereal qualities of the piece. This movement provides a moment of reflection for everything that the ensemble has accomplished in the past.
