My Song Is Love Unknown
This arrangement of English composer John Ireland’s tune LOVE UNKNOWN has been enhanced with an original melody and an optional oboe counter melody. The optional use of chimes, and a minor key in the second verse creates a solemn mood befitting the passion of Jesus. The final verse is triumphant, and features a soaring oboe descant. My Song Is Love Unknown is most suitable for Lent and Holy Week, but is used at various other times during the church year, and provides a perfect opportunity to showcase the oboe with your handbell ensemble. C Instrument part is included. 66 measures. Key of C major.
