    Ur Tica Ria (Organ)

    This is in A - B - A' form, where each section is a fugue with overlap from B to A and A'. Each fugue contains substantial free voice sections, which creates blurring of boundaries. I have no idea if this has been done before, but my guess would be that somebody has done so.

    If the title does not get at least a chuckle and a bit of sympathy from anyone who recognizes it, I will be disappointed.


    Ur Tica Ria

    This version (organ) is the original setting. I also have a piano version, which is at the moment my favorite., It needs a bit of fussing over before I post it, but it will be soon.

    Oh, now, that is just plain fun. Some deep part of me would love to play that as a recessional at church.

    Well, Tom, If I were still a church organist, I probably would do just that. I am the only one I know of that played Ke Kali Ne Au at a wedding.

    Wow, that song goes back to the late 1920s or so. I remember that Arthur Godfrey played it on his radio show and was taken to task for his non-native approach to the music. They words are very romantic, of course, but one needs to have an appreciation of true Hawaiian music to understand it place in a wedding line-up.

    Well, Tom, perhaps I should add that I happened to be in Hawaii at the time I did it.

    Ah! That explains the brilliance of your selection. Well done, I would say.
