Synopsis:                              This lyric work is intelligently composed for the two instruments.
                                       The music is attractive and the score should be a useful addition
                                       to the chamber music literature for the Marimba.

                                       the harmonic and rhythmic underpinnings to the work, adding
                                       percussive counterpoint to the melodic phrases played by the flute
