Carillon compositions referencing J.S. Bach

There are lots of carillon transcriptions of Bach's music, but I'm wondering what original carillon compositions are out there that are either written as an homage to Bach or quote his music.

A couple examples would be:
-Phantasmagoria (Partita) by Neil Thornock, which quotes the Violin Partita No. 3 Prelude
-Prelude and Fugue on Old 104th by Ronald Barnes, which is an homage.

A more tenuous case could be made for Easley Blackwood's Chaconne, where the 13th variation parallels one found in Bach's Chaconne.

Are there others?

Sorry I'm coming back to this so late. Gary White's "Figments," which was a GCNA commission (before the Johan Franco Composition Fund committee was formed) contains several quotes of the 24th fugue from WTC I (b-minor, wonderfully eerie fugue).
