Years ago, on a visit to the old-growth forests in Great Smoky Mountains
National Park, the composer hiked the family-friendly Trillium Gap trail. The
soothing sounds of babbling streams, laughing children and sweet, cheerful
birdsong accompanied him as he walked in this lush natural setting. The
trail leads to the spectacularly beautiful and exhilarating Grotto Falls.
Neece's wish is that this musical portrayal of that experience will transport
both the performers and audience there for a few moments of respite and
relaxation. Duration: 3.5 minutes
