Meant to say the other day how much I liked both text and music here.
I love just about all your work but I must admit I have a particular weakness for pieces that are somehow both corralled and liberated by an engagement with "traditional" forms ( not just forms - a similar effect sometimes happens when you reference particular *kinds* of language or when you riff off source material -it's a kind of groundedness-in-a- tradition/iconoclasm opposition that really works for me.)
best wishes
