James Pethel has created a beautiful, concise piece on the Shaker hymn tune better known as "Simple Gifts." Opening with a bright solo flute, the piece moves to lush chords with a solo melody, then builds gradually to the melody on a solo reed before ending quietly. A truly touching and inspiring arrangement for organists. A must!
