I would like to second the worthiness of Beth Anderson's "Quilt Music" - it
is a contemporary masterpiece of American music and should not be missed.
The Heinrich too, is rarely played and is worth getting up and out to hear.
I would be there if I could.

"We must find out what we can about this place we're living in-this place in
time-but we've got to be awfully careful, it seems to me, never to make
ourselves too perfectly a part of it. Modishness is the sure sign of the
second-rate. We're finally to be judged not by the degree of our involvement
in the mainstream, but by our individual response to it."
