Blithe bells is a free ramble on Bach's Sheep may safely graze - an impressionistic study on the Bach melody which Grainger uses as a point of departure. The work is coloured by the thought that Bach, in writing the melody in thirds that opens and closes the number, may have aimed at giving a hit of the sound of sheep bells.
