The flute and organ duo of Zofie Vokálková and Kathleen Scheide tours in the United States, the Czech Republic, Germany and Russia. This recording includes music for flute and organ as well as flute alone.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
One (above) has largely familiar French pieces and consists mostly of arrangements. This release has original music that will be new to anyone. The performances by Czech flutist Zofie Vokalkova and American organist Kathleen Scheide are impeccable, and the sound is luscious. I found value in these selections that I believe flutists and organists would appreciate. The Chaconne on Ave caeli janua by Pamela Decker (b 1955) works up to a furious and grand conclusion in only five minutes. It was written for these players. The chant this piece is based on is included, sung by Jennifer Elaine Young. The three movements of Lynn Job's House of Jatamansi are introduced with narration. Job's style is appealing. Like the Ropek, it is neoclassical and suits the instruments well. There are pictures and registrations of the two splendid organs in Pennsylvania this program was recorded on. People who like flute or organ should definitely give this a try.
