  • Arrival in a new land celebrates the exhilaration and wonder the settlers must have felt at finally arriving in the New World in 1607.
  • Building a community conveys industriousness as the settlers build the first permanent English settlement in the New World and settle into day to day life.
  •  Pocahantas helps the settlers describes the saving of John Smith and a new spirit of cooperation between the Indians and the settlers beginning in 1608.
  •  A new season of hope:  Although Jamestown would suffer many setbacks before its eventual success was assured, cordial relations with the Indians gave the settlers hope.

 A New Beginning is scored for piccolo, 3 flutes, alto flute, bass flute, and optional contrabass flute.   Optional part now available for FREE download:    Flute 4 (alt. c-part for alto)

    A New Beginning for Flute Choir
    by Phyllis Avidan Louke, ALRY Publications

    “…The spirited fanfare-like opening is followed by a simple tune based on a folk tune from the late 1600s. A mournful short middle section gives way to a charming piccolo and bass flute duet. The piece closes much like it began, with the final major chord an unexpected surprise after so much modality.”
