Falling : for flute ensemble
by May Howlett (2015)
An Ode to Gallipoli and the futility of war. As in a 'still' photo from a movie, each soldier falls to the earth, a dying leaf from the Tree of Life. So the notes fall on the listener, slowly and wearily. We mourn our loss the more because man's lust for power through blood will not be so easily appeased by this sacrifice.
