Composition - - American Recorder Society
By Jamie Allen 2021
"Providence Raptors" is a stunning and fascinating book by nature photographer Peter Green. With his blessing, I am composing a suite of pieces, each of which  is inspired by a different vignette in the book. "Eyas" (which means a falcon nestling) is the first installment of this suite. The story it reflects is that of a plucky newborn falcon who was rescued from almost certain death. I encourage all my friends and colleagues in the American Recorder Society to try these new pieces out as I write them, and provide any feedback you have to me at Thanks!

“Eyas” is the first work in a suite of trios called Providence Raptors. The entire suite (including “Cute & Colorful Little Killers,” “Hungry Hawks Hunting,” “Teenagers with Ferraris,” and “Owls in the Cemetery”) is available from Lost in Time Press.
