Program Notes

The Heather is one of the national flowers of Scotland. This purple flower flourishes in the damp, rainy weather of Scottish moorland, glens and hills. The piece opens with the instruments imitating the drone of the bagpipes setting the stage for a lone trumpet. Throughout the remainder of the work the melody is passed to many voices. It is reflective and expressive.
