Commissioned by Texas Flute Society, Austin Flute Club, Coastal Bend Flute Club, Floot Fire, Flutasia Flute Choir, Flutes Unlimited Flute Choir, Houston Flute Club, University of Texas-San Antonio Flute Choir with generous grants from Altus Flutes, the Wm S Haynes Flute Company, and the Texas Commission of the Arts. First movement is entitled Stained Glass, quarter note=66 with many time changes throughout. Piccolo 2&3 are tacet in this movement. Second movement, Wind, brings all players to bear. Very raucous and furious.

Flutum Mysterium has a certain essence of ancient music in it, hence its title which is a riff on o magnum mysterium. The first half sounds like church music but the second half is purely pagan. Scored for 3 Piccolos, 3 C Flutes, Alto Flute and Bass Flute. Includes score and parts.
