These Mist Covered Mountains

Trumpet in Eb and Piano

These Mist Covered Mountains was commissioned by Keith Johnson (KMJ Recordings) for soprano cornetist, Mandy Crowther, to whom the piece is dedicated.

In an age where we seem to be inundated with endless news cycles of various wars that we as a nation are involved in, and also those that we are not, it seems that war is now a constant, and we are in a never ending state.

This short piece is intended to represent the cyclic nature of war, and the way that war never seems to have a true conclusion.
