A graceful garland of melodies woven by Celtic harp, zither and flutes. This is the debut recording of the Michael & Mead
duo, first released in Japan in 1986. Now digitally remastered for improved sound quality. Enjoy it again for the first time!
Friends and musical associates for many years, David Michael and Randy Mead blend their talents in a gentle graceful musical form that skillfully combines improvised and composed elements, subtly enhancing an essentially acoustic sound with modern instrumentation.
Petals in the Stream remains a perennial favorite, inspired largely by David's love for the Celtic harp. This CD contains some of his earliest compositions for that instrument. Randy's level of heartfelt emotion here ranks among his finest flute performances.
