Though this is an an original composition, it includes the third phrase of Bluebells of Scotland in several places. There are three strong elements of the piece. The first element is the first six notes of the third phrase of Bluebells. The second is the sound of bells in the percussion and the bell-tone effect from the winds. Thirdly, the piece ends rather joyfully, becoming in the process a celebration of life, hence the title, Celebration Hymn.
