    Raymond:
    A winner! It certainly got to me as I really like it's "slightly off-centered-ness." I don't believe any other combination of instruments can portray such emotion as the strings, and this coming from a brass player. I would be honored to have this played as they scatter my ashes over the Cascade Mountains and I don't care HOW they spell it.

    Thank you for those kind words, but I'll sincerely hope that you'll wait getting "ashed". We can't miss you.

    I had to look up Elegy as the word was a new one to me. I can easily see this as a poem. I love strings period and rarely miss the rest of the orchestra, however, I must say that the opposite is not true. I will never be a big fan of marching bands or big bands just because I miss the strings too much


    Very nice work on this in both the composition and the rendering.

    Well done

    I believe I mentioned this piece, too, in another post;
    but spoke mostly to the rendering in that one.

    Raymond, this is an impressive and fascinating elegy;
    in its depth and scope of emotive content, surely;
    but also in the harmonic handling -- the excursions
    that unexpectedly arise in directions that lend new
    dimension to loss. To me, in this -- in the richness
    of the emotive content, in its exploration of avenues
    of grief we have but can so rarely express -- it is
    clearly one of your best.

    Best regards,
