“A gem!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member -

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.

Performance duration (approx): 4'30

Difficulty guide: 6-7
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
