Im glad to see that we all like this piece. Personally I think its among his greatest works. And it creates a very special atmosphere in the picture, and I really love that arie-scene.
Few days ago I mailed to Pat Cassady and wrote about these things you´ve been writing in here - and he cant quite get it. It seems that he dont understand why so many people loves it. But he IS very flattered and honoured about the big response - so just keep writing good thing about it.
He said that there was no "official" score for the opus. And right now he has no attentions about publish any - but he suggested that you bought the soundtrack.
I dont have any more news right now - but if I get any I promise to write back.
This comment is just to ask when there will be a full score available of the opera, you could let me know. Because it seems that you have good contact with Patrick Cassidy, so I think you will know it first. Tell him that I love this musical piece and am looking for more of this opera by him. Every information is welcome.
