Andy!!! Thank you for your comments on Eponina. The recording is not the most recent, but it seemed the most cogent of the lot. At some point, it would be great to tackle some of Nazareth's more spirited and complex rhythmic compositions. I am work

I don't see how this is a Waltz. Perhaps you could explain. As for that 16th rest, I hid it at first, but then it always looked like something was missing as soon as I looked at it. So I brought it back. My eye really needs it, to maintain symmetry
