Having not been raised that way
I have no idea to what you are referring or whether this is appropriate, somehow. Whatever, it is very pretty, if a little subdued, which is not a bad thing.
Cheers, and merry Christmas Vic.

Beatles
These harmonies reminded me immediately of the Beatles, and their song "the fool on the hill". Not that close, but the flutes have that feeling. Wonderful:)

This is a very gentle piece with some exquisite harmonies from your Flutes. Well played and beautifully peaceful my friend.

Very soothing Victor
Your music always does that for me. As for remembering, isn't it comforting to know we have a net to fall into for when we forget. Peace. Terry

are you saying this is about the nostalgia of indoctrination? this sounds like the beginning of some epic burt bacharach tune. it's beautiful, with very well chosen harmonies.

Simplicity...
...is sometimes more effective, which certainly is the case with your piece. You give a lot of space to think within this piece, and I found the harmonies very thought provoking indeed. Thanks for posting.

sweet work
i was listening with interest to see where this went after the second flute at :12. the relationship between the flutes is very mellow, full of a purity - and your breath adds the human dimension in a good way. enjoyed this,
anne

beautiful
yes, sometimes I think back on my Catholic upbringing with fondness. this is a wonderful example of the layers of simple melodies creating gorgeous harmonies. very lovely, and a good reminder for me of how much of a prayer/meditation music can be.

There is
that sense of "other" that you sometimes feel in a religious setting... the unexplainable pull against your spirit. It comes when you are still or in this case, when you are listening to beautiful and elegant music. Thank you.

short
I think you could take this on out; however it works alone, perhaps as a "in-between" tracks piece. Nice.

Or as a prelude
Matins is the first prayer of the day, before sunrise. This is the first movement in a planned sequence of musical prayers. But even then you're right, I could extend it.

Just got the first glimpse
of blue sky this morning - with a deep blanket of snow blown up against the window. Beautiful prayer - thanks for posting.

i have
personally renounced my Catholic upbringing, but still long for the mournful pageantry. this is beautiful, one of the better pieces I've listened to in awhile. no complaints.

My only gripe
Is that I wish this was longer and had more time to develope. I was wanting more for certain.

It is really quite beautiful; I really like the recording tone you are getting.

Being...
...in that same category as regards upbringing, I still enjoy going off with my dad from time to time for a weekend at the somewhat local Trappist monastery.... Getting up in darkness to experience Lauds, and hearing the monks singing the canonical hours throughout the day...

This captures some of that wonderful feel of quiet, contemplation and simplicity...

Lovely
Has a hauntingly sad undertone, yet it is such a pretty tune. Too bad it was so short.

Very pretty and soulful. The meditative feel is somewhat akin to "sacred minimalist" music (Pärt, Tavener, etc.), but this is of course much shorter. Lovely music, beautifully played.

Beautiful as it is. More would be nice, but that's what it's all about wanting us to want to hear more.

Heard the second movement
before this one but I can see how this one builds into the second one's more somber, dissonant tone. This one feels more contemplative and still. The long sustained note was a very nice touch. Enjoyed it! Can't wait to hear the rest.

More quality from my favorite Renaissance artist, haha. My day was severely lacking in flute until I heard this. I owe you one.
