Wonderful! I'd forgotten how good these were/are, even though I've got 
them on a disc on my shelf. I played them to my father-in-law, Jack 
Hindmarsh (now deceased), who was a church organist and a music teacher, 
and he really enjoyed them. Looking at them again, I found myself 
thinking 'Oh, this is the best one' as I came to each of them in turn, a 
bit like you do with the tracks on a really good album you haven't heard 
for ages.

I love the mixture of different techniques and materials used in the 
them - hi-tech and lo-tech cobbled together - and, as Ruth says, the 
unexpectedness of the subjects. And just the sheer exuberant 
inventiveness of the whole thing!
