Description: The composer has created a sensitive and haunting original composition. The poignant melody first appears in the treble. It is then presented in the bass with treble ringing a counter melody on handchimes or handbells. A brief contrasting section with a slightly brighter tempo then modulates to a new key for the final powerful statement of the melody.
