hearing Sarah Rice & Jo Rendle-Short play a recorder duet
by Owen Bullock
You two birds, answering one another two peasant men come in from the fields taking wine from a skin two friends echoing and expanding what the other has said two colours, fastening and loosening their common shade two plants aware of the space between and where nutrients course two apples on the same bough base and treble parts a chord of harmonies two players calling flutes
