Editor's Note

I'm not in the habit of commenting on the material I find while making pages for Wikidelphia. But I am delighted by the rich, complex, powerful, yet peaceful music in Alfie's samples. If you pass by here, do take a listen and then help me encourage Alfie to produce and publish his glorious works.
