Douglas Bell (b. 1932) — Tristram Remembered (2012–13) for organ

English composer Douglas Bell served as organist of St. Bartholomew's Church, Marsden, near Huddersfield, England from 1955 until 2003. He was a student of Francis Jackson and holds a Fellowship certificate from the Royal College of Organists. Bell has composed and published many organ works. In addition to his musical pursuits, Bell played professional cricket for the teams of Huddersfield, Marsden, and Elland.

“Tristram Remembered” (2012–13) is a suite in four movements titled after the life-size statue of "Old Tristram" in Halifax Minster. The wooden sculpture of a beggar with almsbox is unique in England. The title of the first movement refers to the German-born Sir William Herschel (1738–1822) who served as astronomer to King George III of England. He was also the organist at Halifax Parish Church for a brief period in 1766.
