Music to my ears- Sonnerie de St. Genevieve du Mont-de-Paris

One of my favorite classical pieces ever, the Sonnerie de Ste. Genevieve etc. ("the bell-toll of St. Genevieve") was composed by Marin Marais (who has such a lovely and alliterative name) in 1725. More about him later; for now just enjoy the music...

Doesn't it just give you a sense of the churchbells ringing?
