Nod Quiet Ox (1994) is a six-movement dance suite for oboe and piano written for Marcia Butler. it was premiered in recital for the League of Composers in 1995. The work has something of the character of a pastoral; this characteristic helps explain the title. Its structural origin lies in a cycle of fifths principle that governs all pitch material and that principle makes possible enharmonic spellings of significant passages. The title is as well an anagrammatic homage to Don Quixote.
