Song for Magister Léonin is now the third in a series of similarly titled chamber pieces that pay homage to the suave and muscular music of the Medieval composer Léonin.

And yet another in much larger family of pieces that are about a very personal approach to counterpoint – my involvement with Mies van der Rohe’s iconic statement: “Architecture begins when two bricks are placed carefully together”.

More obsession, more searching. More turning the object over and over, tracing its grain…

And another vigil for a ghost.
