Quest for the Holy Grail

Four Pages from an Illuminated Manuscript

2. Percival: Chaconne
3. Bors: Elegy
4. The Confusion and Triumph of Galahad

A piece for trumpet, string trio and piano, from sketches first written in 1977
Here realized by my friends from Garritan Personal Orchestra

Lovely, Tobias. I say this after listening on my laptop, which has less than a stellar sound system. When I get home I'll listen on my good speakers.

Thanks, Mimi. I wanted to review this on my headphones but they don't seem to be working. Speakers aredefinitely better on desktop than laptop...

The piece is even lovelier listening with better quality speakers. The technology that enables the performance is amazing to me.

Thanks again, Mimi. What Garritan did in their software is truly amazing. They are working on an organ package that should be interesting. I'm just glad to be able to realize music that has otherwise been sitting on a shelf for decades.
