Marie's Melancholy Malaguena

I wrote Marie's Melancholy Malaguena in 2012 for my viola playing friend Marie, but it has taken up till now to record it. Working with Sibelius for so long, I had forgotten how tricky it is to record error free real live music. The three 'cello parts and viola are all played by me with lashings of reverb hopefully hiding a multitude of sins. Other stuff I'm about to start on - setting some words for three voices, probably Shakespeare quotations, and creating a piece for a trombone choir.
