So I was looking for a particular audio file this evening, and found something I had completely forgotten about! (I still haven't found the original file I was searching for )
I don't even remember why I wrote this (as if I need a reason), but I think I had originally planned for it to be part of a multi-movement piece. To me the ideas sound like they were cut short, and the rendering was hastily put together, but I figured it's been a very long time since I've posted anything for orchestra here (years, in fact) so I thought I'd share my discovery here! The last-updated date on the original WAV file says November 6, 2011, so it's certainly been sitting around a while. I think that was just as I started a long stint of writing for percussion.
Meadows (which was likely just a working title) is a short chorale-like piece for orchestra. It changes tone a bit at the end, but is otherwise fairly straight-forward.
Anyways, here it is, and thanks for listening!
