Description: The Praying Mantis and the Bluebird for Andrew Bolotowsky
This is the first piece I composed for Andrew in 1979. He is the bluebird. The accompaniment is the mantis. It has a few melodic quotes imbedded in it, including "Nearer My God To Thee". See if you can find others. It may also be performed with any C- instrument and harp.
