Review by Kathy Parsons
"Morning Glory Glory" is a Native American flute single by Diane Wheeler Dunn. An avid gardener and photographer as well as a composer and musician, Diane's inspiration for the piece is explained by the quote: "Imagine the surprise and joy in finding a heart at the center of a morning glory! Would it not be glorious?" It would, indeed, and the vibrant cover artwork is a celebration of such a discovery! The recording was performed with three different flutes, vibes, and an ambient pad. Diane goes on to explain that the piece is "A conversation in the garden between flowers, bursting blooms filled with messages of love each morning of their season." The three flutes really do sound like they are carrying on an animated but peaceful conversation, as their sounds are all distinct from each other and are supported by the ambient background tones and occasional bell-like chimes from the vibes. Soothing and gently uplifting, it's a beautiful piece!

"Morning Glory Glory" is available from Diane's website, Amazon, Apple Music/iTunes and streaming sites like Spotify. Recommended!
