Rites of Spring attempts to capture the feel of spring time with a set of contemporary instrumental music. Bird sounds flow in and out as harps, wood flutes, guitar, synthesizer, and ethnic percussion (congas, tabla) create an Eastern influence on the six tracks included on Rites of Spring. The tracks, with titles like "Awakening," "Spring Blossoms," and "Gentle Breeze," each try to take on a different moment of the spring season.
