The Chimes should be done by all the children. For the Peals the children are best divided into two groups. The group that sings the peal first, being in proportion one to two of the other, and ringing out the word la on every note softly and lightly to imitate a distant peal. The larger group must burst out with the peal in treble and alto, speaking the words of the song very clearly.
The song is ended by all uniting to do the chimes, and diminishing the sound to the end, so that the chimes seem to die away.
The only action in this song is, raising the hand to listen, in the first line, and making a movement suggestive of waves in the third, of the first verse.
