Thanks for being so understanding. You know, we have always been stuck a little between a rock and a hard place regarding selling our arrangements. On the one hand we want to share our lifelong work and make sure it doesn't end up in some attic in a hundred years, and on the other hand we shoot ourselves in the foot a little as we no longer have the only act that does this music.

But I'd rather have the latter I guess. I'm always glad to hear of other quartets success with my music, but I also get a little sad that work is so lean these days.
