20 years ago, Cathedral of the Rockies music director Paul Aitken composed a choral piece that captures the hope and despair felt by World War I soldiers on the fields of Flanders in Belgium.

This month, Aitken will travel to Flanders to conduct a performance of "Flanders Fields"  on June 23. He recently joined Idaho Matters to talk about the importance of the piece and performing it at the site of its inspiration.
