  1. Julie near Chicago

    Thank you, John! As soon as I get back home where I have fixed-fee cable for the Internet, I will be very interested to hear your samples. The Fauré for love, and the Alkan for the fact that I never have heard any of his stuff. :>)

  2. As LA regulars will know, I am entirely devoid of culture, but it sounds very nice to me. You are clearly a talented man Mr Kersey.

  3. I particularly liked the nocturne one.
