The Twilight Carillon Concert

The Twilight Carillon Concert features music by Domenico Scarlatti, Robert Giracello, Johann Sebastian Bach, Carlos Seixas, Donald Johns, Harold Arlen, and Matthias Van den Gheyn. A rarely heard piece on the program will be Hino Nacional by Dom Pedro IV, a king of Portugal. Dom Pedro IV of Portugal was also Pedro I of Brazil. The composition by Dom Pedro was not written for the carillon, but was found on one of the automatic playing devices attached to one of the carillons at the Mafra Palace. University Carillonneur David Christensen has arranged the piece from a copy of the early 18th century manuscript as it may have been played by the carillonneur of the time on the Mafra Palace carillon. A copy of the manuscript was sent to Mr. Christensen by Gary Barnett, a PhD student at UCR.

Also on the program is a set of variations on the hymntune Wondrous Love by Donald Johns. Originally written for organ, three movements of the piece have been transcribed for carillon.
