Hi,

I had promised one of my high school friends, İsmail KARAHAN, to compose one of his poems.

But did not.  Then recently I heard he is ailing with a serious health problem.  I had to write

this in one week not to regret my promise for the rest of my life.

I hope you enjoy it.

Note. The theme comes from the major at the end with a smooth transformation.

  • HI, Ali,

    Nice to see you again. I was going to drop you a note but knew you were busy - and here you are!

    A most pleasant song and a lovely poem to work with. Nice that it slowly transformed into the major from round about bar 100.

    I haven't tried to analyse it - don't want to with a song like this in case it breaks the spell of the music for me. But I noticed plenty of indicators of your skills, quite aside from the general harmony that has some interesting twists.  A few suspensions, harmonies with the recorder in contrary motion, nice contrapuntal effect - and such.

    Your friend should be pleased indeed - let's hope so.

    And I hope you're keeping well and coping with this endless lockdown it seems.

    All the best,

    Dane.
