Affaire de Coeur
This original solo bell piece with keyboard accompaniment won the "Solo, Duet or Small Ensemble" Category of the 1998 Composition Contest sponsored by the Alberta (Canada) Guild of English Handbell Ringers. The melody is sweet and nostalgic in the opening section, but moves to a piu mosso section where the time signature is 5/8. Performance suggestions are written into the solo part for easy access. Written in the key of Bb Major, this piece is 95 measures.
