This piece depicts the mourning of a loved one who has passed. The poignant text lends itself to multiple voicings as singers sing of loss that feels deeply personal and isolating … heavy to bear and borne alone … as funeral bells ring in Johnny’s honor to reflect the grief shared by many. Johnny … the boy I call my own … can reflect a son, brother, friend or significant other. Beautiful haunting melodies and harmonies unfold to portray the emotion of the day. An optional handbell score is included to enhance the performance.
