2nd movement of Afghanistan: Requiem for a Generation

Jeff Ryan just sent me the 2nd movement of the Requiem. to say it’s wonderful, powerful, kuhl, is an understatement.

it’s been awhile since I read the words and so seeing them set to music feels like I didn’t even write them (always a good sign I believe, for a writer to think someone else wrote the work!).

I’ve been able to plunk out the vocal lines with my right hand, but the left hand is toast so I have an APB out for a pianist to drop by to my studio for a sight reading.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
