    Fantastic Bruce…nature can inspire great things. I looked the bird up on youtube…the music goes with it great.

    A technical question if you don’t mind. You don’t do a long one but what is the technical name for what you did at around :17 ? In my non-existent piano knowledge I have always called it a “roll”…which is not right.

      Thanks Max. Technically speaking that thing at around :17 is just a whole lot of notes! It’s not a trill or a mordent. I don’t think what the music does has a name – it just went a bit berserk on the oboe.

            Ok I get it…I looked up a video example…I get it. Well you are a wealth of knowledge tonight…now I know what a mordent is.

        Summer is wonderful. I can never remember being so happy or healthy. The garden is wonderful and I’m happy to spend most of my time pottering, reading and doing enough work on my book to prevent the project from dying on the vine.
