Misc. Comments

Prelude for viola and cello is deeply meditative in character. The duo stays in the lowest portion of both instruments and creates the feeling of Gregorian chant while employing a contemporary vocabulary. It was incidental music to a play, around 1983 when I was teaching at the Steiner College in Fair Oaks, CA.
