Light-dance (2012)

For Recorder Octet   5 minutes

Light-dance was written in response to a request from the Society of Recorder Players for a work to celebrate the organisation’s 75th birthday and was premiered by Zero Gravity under the direction of Evelyn Nallen in November 2012. Perky and fun to play, the piece is a perfect concert work for recorder consorts of medium to high ability.
