SKU: [7608]

Composed for 8 flutes, this work is based on clusters of pitches mainly between the notes in the two octaves above the flute's low d-natural. Rhythms are not difficult. The title is intended to invoke Calliope, the Greek Muse of heroic poetry, not the keyboard-operated steam whistle. It is dedicated to Dr. Lisa Jelle and the Capital University Conservatory of Music Flute Ensemble who gave the first public performance.
