"Hi Wes
There are some nice moments in this but there is no phrasing.

"Wes, I enjoyed this very much.  It has a delicate, sincere and expressive feel.  I like the simplicity of it.  The placement of the ornaments in the upper voice was quite well done.  This is the kind of piece that would benefit, re how it comes…"
