Cohen presents five descriptive and varied miniatures for flute choir, inspired by a major food group. All parts of the choir are featured, from the low flutes in An Ugli Fruit Goes Bad to the piccolo in Lemon-Lime, So Sublime. The movements evoke a gigue, a "sinister dance," a hornpipe, a Celtic air, and end with the "bouncy and nautical" Voyage of the Clementimes. Without questioning the underlying inspiration, the cycle gives better flute choirs the opportunity for a fun night out! For advanced performers
