The Voice Of Trees was recorded in 1983 but never officially released. It is a 64 minute composition including Lubomyr Melnyk - Canadian composer and pianist of Ukrainian origins - on piano and Melvyn Poore - who became a member of the European ensemble Zeitkratzer many years later - on tuba, both instruments played in real-time and over backing tracks. The Voice of Trees is a work of true and intense beauty. It is a lost masterpiece, as many of Melnyk’s  pieces are, that need not hide in the shadow of the Reich/Glass/Riley axis but come to light in the history of twentieth-century composition.
