What instrument was that? A fiddle? I know there is some sort of Oriental instrument that lies flat and the player just picks the strings in the same sort of way as a harp, but the sound is shorter and not quite as orchestral as a harp, though for this piece, it works.
I think that the bell tolling could have been done away with - it just gave the wrong sort of sound for the piece, in my opinion. Where the sounds of the locale came into the piece, these were just perfect, so keep that part up.
I thought that you went a little along the line of "Tubular Bells" in the middle, where your melody started to sound as if it was one of those pieces, but you recovered it and it was only a passing phase.
