John Rutter’s timeless arrangement of Hoagy Carmichael’s Skylark, a standard of the golden age of American song, is rich, mellow, and mellifluous. Soaring lines for flute depict the eponymous songbird, and the classic Hoagy Carmichael tune is shared between solo voice and choir, the latter also often providing a cushion of evocative harmonies.
