"Eagle Flight"

Story

Flutist: Tim Crawford

CD: Voices

Notes: Native American-style flute in the key of A by Ken Light. The "call" was accomplished by all open finger holes, being raised an octave, and controlled by the embouchure. It is accompanied by a chorus in this recording.

This song was created to commemorate the release of a healed eagle into the wilds, near Rabbit Creek, Alaska, and it was played by Tim during that release. This recording was made in 1998, not long after the eagle’s release.
