Inspired by the wonder that is this greatest month of the year, we have created an "album" of sorts to aid your incantations and dampen your spirits. "Side One" and "Side Two" were set down to magnetic tape some time ago. Being the record of four separate works combined into two. Using the panning control on your listening device you may select the track on the "left", the track on the "right", or "center" which will play both simultaneously. They have been carefully arranged so that while in the "center" position they do not interfere with one another. The choice is yours. Two other instrumental works are included with the digital version which will be made available when the physical packages are no more.
