Sandy, You mentioned another composition and that it would be similar to your first. Hey, that's how we know one composer from another.

That's why I can distinguish music of Brahms from Mendelssohn, Shostakovich from Bach. Each has his own sound. Your sound is just yours.

So when is it coming? We're waiting. Jean

Gosh, I wish I could compose the way that one of those men did! They are all amazing. I'm especially in love with Brahms right now. I played "Lerchengesang" for the prelude at church today. ("Song of the Larks")

I've been crazy busy lately, painting and redoing the floors in two rooms of my house for the past two months. But, I think I'll finish up one of the rooms tomorrow night!

So, then, that room can be set up with furniture again, and my piano will be ready to play. I'm moving in an organ on June 2nd, so that will be fun too. Can't wait!

Interesting. You've been remodeling for the past 2 mos. and you still appear to be sane! How long will the recuperation period be?

Yes, the 'Song of the Larks' is so beautiful. The words too. 'How sweetly you move my heart, you lovely voices.'
You ever see the movie based on the book by Willa Cather?

I didn't mean to infer that the only good composers were male.
Let's not ignore Augusta Read Thomas (composer in residence for the Chgo. Symphony for several years),and Conni Elinoor (Blackberry Winter) and Joan Tower(Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman). Have you heard any of their stuff? I think you'd especially enjoy "Blackberry Winter". It's a concerto for dulcimer and orchestra. Really cool! Yes women can compose music.

So much to hear . Good luck with your remodel work. Jean

The REST OF MY LIFE! I don't want to do this kind of work ever again.

No, I haven't read that book, or seen the movie. I'll look for them!

Another thing to look for! Thanks for all the good leads.

Thank you!

I've been hearing an arrangement of Finlandia going through my head lately. But it's very complicated, with lots of movement. I wonder if I'll ever be able to put it all on paper?

Someone recorded me playing at church a couple weeks ago! Here's the video of "Here I Am, Lord".

Really lovely, Sandy. Did you do the arrangement also? It's a bit different from the one I know.
If you're ever able to get Finlandia the way you want it, be sure you post it here, please? It's one of my favorites.
