Since I subscribed to LAU, I have started to look forward to the
compositions that people share here.

I waited until I had a spare moment to really focus on this one.  It's
great.  Thank you so much for it.

Thank you so much for all the "behind-the-scenes" info, too.  I'm still
new enough to Linux audio that details like this add considerably to my
understanding of the soundsets, software and workflows available.

In gratitude,
