A Composer’s Roots

Sorting through old files, I came across the first piece I ever wrote: “Melody of Praise” for Handbell Choir (1989). I wrote this at the invitation of my first piano teacher, who directed a handbell choir at the small private school I attended in rural New Hampshire. Here are the score and the original manuscript, including edits in green. (I thought I had neater hand-writing when I was in seventh grade!)
