Description

"Doves of St Nicholas' Church" is a sonnet by contemporary poet Sylvia E. Halloran, about the observation of birds in flight. It includes a flute part and a secondary melody for either oboe or violin. The piece has a wide stylistic range and is a great up-tempo addition to any concert, especially featuring the themes of flight, birds, or nature.
