Program Notes

In the late summer months, the Scottish countryside is covered by the heather flower. Purple in color, it makes the otherwise harsh landscape a place of tranquil beauty. In this adaptation of the Scottish folk song Wild Mountain Thyme, composer Michael J. Miller’s Purple Mountain Heather captures the serenity of the Scottish moors in full bloom. Flowing melodies phrased with expressive shaping are passed throughout the ensemble, creating heartfelt drama for all to enjoy.
