When one door closes, God opens another--that's what this story says to me. Your musical descriptions had me feeling the rise and fall of the notes and emotions soaring from the instruments. Great job.

Your beautiful descriptions made this easy to follow even tho I know nothing about the music. Great word choices and phrasing, and a solid storyline. Loved it.

I could almost hear the music...I loved the line, "A flute answered each trumpet call with a delicate trill of a melody, which melted seamlessly into a whispered, hymn-like song..." Beautiful writing. Loved this.
