Duration (minutes): 
Detailed Instrumentation: 
Woodwind Quintet and Piano
The composer provides the following notes:  "Since the sound of the woodwind quintet conjures up in my mind the sound of nature, I wanted to compose a piece based on a program that had to do with an enchanted forest.  I chose two different times of a beautiful forest and musically 'illustrated' what might be going on at these times.  In that sense, the piece is programmatic."  The movement titles are:                                    I.  First Glimpses of Sunlight
II.  Afternoon Dance
