Michael Hoppe's gentle melodies are served well by the inspired interplay of piano, viola, and flute (Tim Wheater, in a starring role). The songs flow sweetly and playfully, like butterflies reconnoitering a spring garden, alighting momentarily on leaves, and then dispersing. Two versions of the title song bookend the album--the first played by the trio and the last a haunting solo piano turn by the composer.
