I am very pleased to present to you my piece "Song for Alison"
. Some may recall the thread a few weeks ago;
Well, in the end I wrote something and Bill (Intune) was kind enough to approve of it.
I wanted to keep it to two pages, so its a bit cramped.
Here is the score for A4 pages;
And here it is for US letter pages;
Engraved in Graphire Music Press.

A few words about the piece. Bill had specified the key and the tuning and the general mood. He also wanted it to be three minutes long ...
The main theme - Nobilmente
- came to me while driving, and survived the perils of memory well enough, though the games I thought of playing with it while driving about (inversion etc) didn't in the end get included. Well that did but not simultaneously.
I had asked Bill for any special musical favourites they shared, and he sent a huge list - I was tickled that it included the Mozart Dies Irae
which just might have crept in a bit at one point. Others deliberately placed I will leave, as I did for Bill and Alison, as Easter Eggs for you (kinda topical there now in writing this).
The writing process was quite protracted and Bill made several very useful suggestions and quietly pushed it into the shape its in now; all its remaining faults are of course mine. But I'm sure I've never tweaked and fiddled and tweaked again anything remotely as much as this before!
