My friend Grace Hodges Tice is the oboist in this lovely rendition of the Morricone piece. Please enjoy!

From the Facebook page:
“Gabriel’s Oboe” – during our Covid 19 isolation time. This is one of my favorite pieces of music and it was a privilege to record with these amazing artists: Erika Fish Johnson(cello), Grace Hodges Tice (oboe). I dedicate this to my daughter, Melody McCain Dowdy. We hope you enjoy this wonderful Ennio Morricone composition and that you consider sharing this on your Facebook page for others to enjoy.
