(recording by National Flute Choir on the CD Silver)  

Originally commissioned for Alto Flute & Piano by Sue Blessing, Echoes in the Wind—A Native American Soliloquy is meant to evoke the image of a Native American flutist playing from a mountaintop to the valley below.  At the suggestion of Patricia George, Echoes in the Wind was adapted for flute choir.  The haunting quality of the flutes conveys the elusiveness of the wind, as it ebbs and flows through this piece.  The music is equally effective when substituting c-flutes for alto (Part 5) & bass flute (Part 6) parts.

Echoes in the Wind is scored for piccolo, 3 flutes, alto & bass.  Concert flutes can be substituted for alto (c-flute part included) and bass flute  Optional parts now available for FREE download:  contrabass flute

    Echoes in the Wind: A Native American Soliloquy for Flute Choir
    by Phyllis Avidan Louke, ALRY Publications

    “… this haunting work includes two rhythmic and melodic ostinatos, contrasting slurred sections, and occasional flourishes in the high voices…”
