  1. hi p & g. – i love these records. thanks for making them. but i want More! i’m at least half-joking, there; this discography is a nice body of work and sufficient legacy, already – but it could always be enlarged. one idea is to release on cd the ‘lost’, cassette-only release ‘bicinia sacra et profana’; i’d Love to hear/have that on cd. the tape is still out there, but i can’t go there, as it were; need the cd. in any case, you two are great. gayle, i guess you’ve got what is just about the best voice ever. it’s a shame that not every human will hear it. best wishes re everything & i’ll always be on the lookout for new recordings. thanks! -kk
