Hi Scott.

This is SO good to read that you have such a regard for one of MY personal favourites. I do indeed play it live from time to time. It is such a slow emotive piece that I have to catch the mood just right, not only for myself but my audience. Written in 1987 to the meter of a poem by Elizabeth Barker. Up until about two years ago the tuning for this piece was sacred to just that one piece, since then I have written two more pieces in the same tuning which is...E. A .C sharp. E. B .C sharp...ENJOY!

Be Well sir.

Gordon.

Thank heavens for that tuning info gordon! iv'e been trying to figure it out for ages.i think it's probably my favourite of all and as you say it really needs the right mood.to me it's about as good as it gets and i'm sure nany on the forum would agree.best regards scott
