Reworked slightly Oct. 2011. Respaced. Ending measures for each piece lengthened for audio considerations. No note corrections.
Considerably revised June-July 2015 with a fair number of note corrections. The Kayak Paddler's Song has been redone in a less obstruse style to conform better with its song-like character. The piece Mushing with Medtner is Medtnerish only marginally, as the play on the word 'mushing' instead of 'messing' implies. A fresh revision is in the works with a new title, more in accord with its variegated character (enacted March 2019).
