Cesare,
   Thanks for posting this. I enjoyed all 4 pieces, my favorite being
'As We Grow Older'. I think this one could have appeared as part of a
Genesis album, circa 'The Lamb Lies Down...'. Very good piece.

   Please don't be apologetic about tools. No sense wasting time on
those thoughts.

   The music brightened my dreary, cold Friday afternoon here in California.

With best regards,
Mark
