||"Raptor Music" for Solo Horn was composed in 2013 by Douglas Hill. Hill wrote this for the virtuoso Horn player, Frank Lloyd. Being a friend and fellow birder of Lloyd’s, Hill chose the vivid poem "Raptor Music" by Steve Millards, as an inspiration for this demanding work. The performer is asked to administer a few extended techniques including vocalizations, various glissandi, flutter-tongue, valve tremolos, and half-stopped effects. This will challenge any performer. Well worth the effort. Also available as a PDF.
