    I have purchased several of your quartets and trios for our group and really have enjoyed them all. Last night, less than an hour before a rehearsal, I purchased Songs of the British Isle. I ran it off and set it out, After running through a couple other pieces, we read down the set and wow. Immediate hit, immediate gratification and immediately programed Amazing Grace for a recessional on a church gig. Thanks. Interesting, unique arranging and accessible stuff. Appreciate it
