I have downloaded and listened to The Heart. I congratulate you Karl on both the conception and execution of the composition.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.

This is beautiful, Karl. I enjoyed it. From the other music of your’s that I’ve heard, it sounds rather uncharacteristic and unexpected. As someone who is basically obsessed with harmony and who is always listening out for this particular element in music it seems, I thought many of the chordal voicings in the piano accompaniment were lovely.

Why would you say that, John? I've always thought that Karl had a real knack for choral music.

Ah, but I used the phrase ‘other music of his that I’ve heard’. Truth be told, I haven’t heard a lot of Henning’s choral music and I was referring to the pieces that are more stark in their sparsity.

An excellent performance of an excellent composition for choir!
