Fern Honey (1972)
“Fern Honey,” subtitled "A Sentimental Rag," is the oldest piece in this collection. It is an evocation of a romantic evening, its mood tempered by a note of sadness and regret toward the end. Though originally written for violin and piano, it later became a part of "Clarinet Bouquet." I made the current arrangement in 1996.
