Glenn Sutherland’s recorder quintet is a celebration of life’s renewal in springtime. The title refers to the common name of a graceful iris of shorelines and marshes. This piece arose from the joie de vivre one can feel seeing the liveliness of this flower as it begins to move and dance in the slanting rays of the early morning sun just as the on-shore breezes begin to pick up. The bass part receives a fair bit of attention in this piece.
