Covenant of Love
This original composition was commissioned to celebrate a 45th wedding anniversary. The inspiration for this piece came from Ephesians 5:31-33 "...a man leaves father and mother and cherishes his wife. No longer two, they become 'one flesh.'" The music is built on a small motif, a minor second interval, and its reverse, the major seventh. A full score keeps all ringers involved. Part of the Nancy Jessup Handbell Series, this piece totals 142 measures.
