    Story Behind the Song
    Written as the third movement (possibly the last) in a suite for chamber strings and woodwinds. The first two movements, The Birds of Eastham and Night Prayer of the Pilgrims are followed by this movement reflecting the time of the American Revolution.

    This is a new rendering as of 6/2001.
