Also rather belatedly the time has come to announce the first paid piece has been published in the most unlikely of places. I hesitated a great deal over letting friends and family know fearing the shock may be too much for them. The piece stemmed from some research on carillons. Leuven is blessed with three and will soon have a fourth. The newest carillon is part of a reconciliation project between the cities of Leuven and Neuss. This piece considers the necessity of, but the difficulties in, reconciliation. The Church Times accepted the piece and you can read it here: Ring of Bells to Peal for Peace.
