Saturday Sonata (Sherlock Holmes)

Solo Sonata a minor (1974)

The "Sherlock Holmes" sonata, written and first performed backstage when I was acting in the Royal Shakespeare Company revival of the William Gillette play at the Broadhurst) and had lots of time on my hands (didn't enter until Act I Scene 3) and a willing violinist (who provided the offstage live sound of Holmes' fiddling).

Four movements: Andante - Fuga - Largo - Allegro

Tobias - thank you for this. Much like the Emmaus music, this moved my heart deeply.

I was clicked into this and was listening and openened another window to read a moving post at another blog.

Your music was the perfect thing when reading that post.

God is so very good indeed.

Thanks Fran for pointing me to Ruth. I left a comment at her blog about the richness of weeping...

What can I say that's new? Nothing, except that I loved the sonata.

Tobias, I must point people here. One does not put a light under a bushell.

Pax my brother.
