Albert W Ketèlbey (1875-1959) was an English composer whose early music won the praise of Elgar and gained first place
over Holst. From ages 16 to 20, he was a church organist as well as a piano soloist. After 1912, Ketèlbey became a music editor for
Chappell and music director of the Columbia Gramophone Co. He gave many of his works exotic titles (In a Persian Market, In
the Mystic Land of Egypt, In a Chinese Temple Garden), but Bells across the Meadows, originally written in 1921,
is simply a characteristic bit of the English countryside. Interestingly, it was initially rejected as having no future but it was a huge success.
In the UK, it was banned from being played in 1941 for the war duration because it had unaccompanied church bells. Moderately easy.
