thanks so much for "A Song After Sundown." I love that piece, and the "peace" behind it. I studied with David sometime ago at UCLA with another young talent by the name Jake Heggie, who I couldn't stand - but was a darling to the department, and especially Johanna Harris. David actually wrote me a letter of recommendation for law school for me.. Never went. and the rest is history!
