This charming trio is scored for two flutes and alto flute. Suitable for intermdiate players, the parts are well balanced and provide opportuities to develop a rich, lyrical tone and to create a warm blend within the ensemble. Centred upon the lower two registers of the flute, this is a gentle work which is well-suited to a broad range of performance situations. Written to commemorate the birth of the composer's youngest granddaughter, the piece represents the calmness of a sleeping child. This is a simple and appealing piece which is enjoyable to play.

A gentle trio for 2 concert flutes and 1 alto flute.
I wrote a piece of music to commemorate the birth of all three of my grandchildren, and this was written for my younger grand daughter Leila, who was always asleep when I saw her as a newborn baby. She has certainly made up for this since – as a child who loves dancing, singing & gymnastics.
