Virginia Highlands Suite
In this commission for the Virginia Highlands Festival in 1996, Ms. Dobrinski presents four tunes: "Abingdon (A Grateful Heart), Mountain Mist (Meditation), Strolling the Barter Green (A Joyful Heart) and Abingdon Revisited". The second title of each tune is a suggestion for use in worship. Each piece is arranged with different texture and techniques. Especially interesting is the use of LV and mallets on suspended bells in Mountain Mist; one cannot almost feel and see the fog on an early morning in the mountains.
