Deborah J. Anderson composed in 2004 parts and score flute choir: solo bassoon (or cello or clarinet), eight flutes (or six flutes, alto flute, bass flute) 3 movements: 1. River 2. Forest 3. Wind

Tahoma, the Native American name for Mt Rainier, means roughly "the mountain that is god", or "near to heaven." The first movement "River", portrays the force and unpredictability of rivers formed by glacier runoff. "Forest" invites you into the cool and dense areas still covered with patient old trees. "Wind, the final movement, addresses a more violent aspect of the mountain, drawing you into the wild nature of the element, surprising you with its sudden shifts of mood and tempo.
