Mordovian Moods By Sandi Horton


Mordovian Moods


Sandi Horton

Written by

Steve Sheppard


A mournful yet beautiful flute cries out across the vast reaches of our planet, in response to the imprisonment of American Brittney Griner, being sent to a work prison in Russia. This song though also represents the depths of sadness we all feel when we suffer a loss of any kind, it is palpable and deep.

Here Sandi Horton has manifested a wonderfully sensitive solo flute narrative, one that speaks throughout the ages, and resonates with all in a reflective style, emotive in its construction, but also, by the very beauty of the music, one thing is held dear within the notes of this sublime song, hope.


  1. Thank you for capturing the essence of the piece, 'Mordovian Moods', so eloquently in words. I appreciate the time you gave to understand my expression of loss and hope through a Native American flute.
