Poem for Innocence by Wendy Loomis
Includes score and parts
Poem for Innocence is a work for three C flutes, alto flute and bass flute, with optional narrator and percussion.
The concept of the piece is the sense of innocence present on the days before major disastrous days in history. (What were we all doing on September 10, 2001?) Can anyone remember the day before? The dates listed at the end (2013, 2014, 2015, etc.) refer to an optimistic view that the universe as we know it will continue after the various apocalyptic predictions of an end in 2012.
