Lament for the Holy City from 'Visions' [Flute and Piano]
- Staff Pick
- Editor's Choice
This is yet another gem from John Rutter! A sumptious melody is allowed its full sorrowful impact by a subtle and understated accompaniment. The practicalities are great too as it's well withing the grasp of intermediate flute and keyboard players as well as a lovely addition to a full flute recital.
From the Publisher
This hauntingly beautiful piece, arranged for flute and piano by the composer, is extracted from Rutter's large-scale work Visions. The expressive solo line features long phrases and a quasi-improvised section, making it an ideal concert work for intermediate to advanced flautists.
