    "Minuet"

    Fellow Music Folks,

    This is a simple "Minuet" that I wrote this morning while trimming my beard.

    As you probably know, this was a very popular dance among the French aristocracy when I was a child.

    There is a semi-fugue at the beginning and several key changes.

    You will hear the GPO harpsichord.

    While trimming your beard, Larry?

    What did you do whilst brushing your teeth? I hope you didn't squander that valuable sixty seconds without turning out a few pages of music... lol.

    You've really been on your feed, lately, Larry. Quite a charming minuet, very well done!

    My best,

    Post Scriptum:

    While shaving this morning, I did absolutely nothing
    but look in the mirror and drag the blade across my face.

    I am deeply ashamed.

    Wow Larry, how long does it take you to trim your beard? ... impressive. Such a great work in so little time. I really like the rhythm and flow of this piece especially the ground bass parts. Good job... "Nipples of Venus anyone?"

    I believe that this is the most colorful response to my music yet.

    Thank you for listening, Michael.

    I agree with David, you've been doing some excellent stuff lately. This is exquisite. I hope you didn't get any whiskers on your harpsichord.

    Great work, Counterpoint King! I enjoyed this very much... it would be fun to watch Mozart play this blindfolded. And some Capezzoli di Venere sound good

    I don't speak Yugoslavian so I can't understand what you're saying.

    Thank you for taking the time to listen and comment.
