"Cliff Palace Serenade"




Flutist: Randy “Windtalker” Motz


On a visit to Mesa Verde National Park, I was overwhelmed with the immensity and majesty of the Cliff Palace. The emotions that experiencing this sacred ground brought to the surface inspired me to compose “Cliff Palace Serenade.” This sacred vestige of “The Ancient Ones” demanded a symphonic piece that musically portrayed its breathtaking grandeur, while paying homage to the spirits of those who once lived there through the haunting sound of flute.
