Bob Porter replied to Jon Corelis's discussion What is open instrumentation?
"I guess an example might be four part harmony in a hymnal. It can be played by a different insruments. Piano, organ choir, guitar accordion, brass, string orchestra, and any combination of the above. The instruments aren't specified. "

"Hello Jon,
I listened to this with interest. True to the style.

Thanks for sharing.

"Hi Jon,
I definitely liked this.  This is my best choice in your ouvre

This is probabably one of my…"
