The cello's tribute to the lilting song of the Western Meadowlark is Bach's "Allemande," from Suite No. 1 in G for Unaccompanied Cello.

Paul Winter: “Walking across range-land in the valley one afternoon, in search of the Buffalo, we heard the lilting song of a Western Meadowlark, and then saw it, sitting on a fence post. Eugene Friesen pays tribute to Meadowlark music with a pizzicato version of the 'Allemande' from Bach’s Suite No. 1 in G for Unaccompanied Cello.”
