Composer's Notes:
A Trilogy for Friends was written in memory of three friends and colleagues at the University of Texas at San Antonio whose lives were cut short by illness. Their contributions musically and personally to those whose lives they touched will not be forgotten. Premiere performance was by Kasandra Keeling, Associate Professor of piano at UTSA, and former student of all three, at the 2003 UTSA New Music Festival, San Antonio, Texas.
Pavane for Kathy Mason Hodges

Kathy was a pianist and accompanist, one of the most beautiful and gentle souls, full of music and laughter.
Remembering Reed for Reed Holmes

Reed was a composer, theorist, friend, guitarist and teacher. His music was elegant and impeccably crafted.
Capriccio and Chaconne for JK for Janice Kay Hodges - J.K. to all who knew her. She was a pianist of world class, her hearty laugh and joy of life brightened the halls, and her music made life worthwhile.
