Solo C or F instrument (both versions included in PDF).
This piece was offered as a "thank you" to ARS members and friends for Thanksgiving 2020, with the following message:
It’s impossible to say it often enough, emphatically enough, or in enough different ways. The American Recorder Society, which provides a supportive community for all who value the recorder and its music, would not exist without your generosity. In this time of pandemic, we particularly want to:
Thank you for joining the American Recorder Society.
Thank you for learning Zoom and adapting to virtual chapter meetings.
Thank you for attending virtual workshops and concerts.
Thank you for learning to play the recorder online.
Thank you for being passionate about playing the recorder.
Thank you for your generous donations that support ARS programs and grants.
And so we want to thank you with a special gift. Boston composer and recorder player Melika Fitzhugh has very graciously agreed to share her solo piece Love in the Time of COVID-19 with the American Recorder Society. It’s a haunting, meditative work that speaks of longing, loss, and hope, and there are versions suitable for C or F recorder. We hope you enjoy Melika’s music.
