Music on the Theme of Love


Childers, Brian, From the Top Music

Brian created this lovely original piece based on the word: LOVE. He assigned musical notes to each letter: L = E; O = D; V = A; E = B.
It begins with bass Singing Bells ringing an ethereal A9(sus4) chord while handchimes ring the musical theme: E - D - A - B (LOVE). That sets the tone and he develops it quite nicely as the melody shifts to the bells with lower chimes in the accompaniment.
