Program Notes

This setting for concert band is loosely based on an old Scottish folk song, In April, When Primroses Paint the Sweet Prairie, also known as The Yellow-Hair'd Laddie. This song first appeared in Mrs. Crockat's Manuscript Music Book in 1709, and later in The Tea-Table Miscellany in 1725.

With deepest affection , admiration and appreciation, Country Wildflowers is dedicated to my dear friend, Sally and Harvey Ott. Like spring and summer wildflowers, they make the world beautiful.
