Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Sunday Music Blogging - 3/14

There are many recordings of this Dowland fantasy on YouTube.  Alas, a lot of them have distractingly noisy backgrounds, or tape hiss. This clean recording is just a bit on the slow side for my taste, but the playing and the musicianship are wonderful. 

I loved this piece the first time I heard it.  Several years later, I wrote this fugue, based (sort of) on the theme, and incorporating some of its nuances and devices.  

Here is a midi recording, voiced for four woodwinds: flute, clarinet, oboe and basoon.
