Comments: For solo alto flute, unaccompanied.
   Composer's notes: "The Angel Who Bears a Flaming Sword (2008), originally a piece for trumpet, was adapted to alto flute for (and on the advice of) Peter H. Bloom, a highly versatile flutist noted for performing new music in the Boston area. It was premièred by him in June 2009 at historic First Church in Woburn, Massachusetts.
   The piece has some elements of Ego vox clamantis in deserto (as John the Baptist ‘explained’ himself in the Gospel). The sword of flame is in the hands of an Angel posted by the Most High to bar the return of errant man to Paradise; and, in part, this piece meditates on that Angel’s sorrow. ~Karl Henning

   Also available in a version for C flute (LNP-0216).
