Music is one of our most poignant means of expression... and an ongoing link to the memory of loved ones. In honor and remembrance of their children who have died, a group of parents created a handbell choir as an ongoing expression of love for God and joy in the gift of these children.
The handbells used by the choir are individually donated by the parents and are inscribed with their children's names. In addition, the majority of the ringers in the group are parents who have lost children.
The music played with bells representing these children's lives is unlike that which any other group can provide: It represents a beautiful contribution they are continuing to make to the world. From this symbolism comes the name of the group: Music Made in Heaven. The message behind the music is one of faith, hope, joy and gratitude for the lives of these children, however long or short those lives were.
