Flocks by Marilyn Bliss
Arranged for 3 C Flutes and Alto Flute, with both Flute 2 and 3 doubling on Piccolo
Includes score and parts

Flocks, for flute quartet, was inspired by the annual migration of flocks of birds from their summer home in the North to their winter home in the South. The piece is loosely programmatic, beginning with the first restless urges of some, then even the most reluctant birds, to leave their northern home, through their joyful flight south...often flying in parallel or similar motion, to the sighting of their southern home, and finally the quiet of sleep after the long journey.
