Last summer my husband celebrated his 80th birthday, and our daughter threw a surprise party for him. During the festivities, I sang and accompanied on the piano a song I had written for the occasion.

It later occurred to me that the song might  also sound good on recorders, so I arranged it for recorder quartet and wrote a new set of words commemorating the 70th anniversary of the American Recorder Society — and thanking the ARS for so many years of service to recorder players. I feel honored that the ARS Board has chosen my song for this year’s Play-the-Recorder Month. (text continued in download)
