    Very interesting and certainly different.. fuuny thing is "that may actually exsist in some orders".. does take talent even if kinda silly.

    I wish you the Best for each day, now and always.

    Obviously had far too much time on their hands ...
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    After a long couple of weeks (music-wise) and a long Christmas weekend.... two services followed by a seven-hour drive.....this made my day!

    A happy one to all!

    Thanks, Nicam. I'll second Organiste's comment - this did make my day. I'll make sure my friends see it as well.

    It kind of reminded me of those TV shows Bernstein used to make, where he would perform a piece with an orchestra and at the same time have people with big boards showing the current part of the form (exposition, development and recapitulation) to the audience.

    Glad you enjoyed it, those who did! Did post on the CMF #2814, but think it got overlooked. Not sufficiently serious content perhaps!
