From the recording Morning Song

Commissioned by flutist and retired music professor, Robert Pritchard, to be a work for flute and wind band. Although the piece is quite lovely - as is the Appalachian folk hymn on which it is based - the solo part does include some virtuosic cadenza moments which will be a welcome challenge for more accomplished players. The work was premiered in October 2019 by Mr. Pritchard, accompanied by the University of Mobile Symphonic Winds and conducted by the composer.
