The Bells of St. Genevieve

The Bells of St. Genevieve (Sonnerie de Sainte Genevieve du Mont de Paris in its original French - literally The Bells of Saint Genevieve of Paris' hill) is the name of a piece written by marin marais in 1723 for viol, violin and harpsichord with basso continuo, and commonly considered a passacaglia or chaccone because of its repeating ground. Thoughout the piece, the melody alternates between the viol and violin, exploring a number of techniques and demanding a considerable technique (particularly in the viol parts).
