Written for the Syracuse Children's Choir and their director, Dr. Barbara Tagg, this SSA setting of the John Freeman poem portrays in lyrical musical lines how music comes wafting from varied sources in various ways to the receptive ear. The poem's references to the sounds of flute and oboe are conveyed musically by those instruments, with the jarring drums beat represented in the piano accompaniment.
