    I really enjoyed hearing your interview of William and Wendell, and for sharing their superb work which I had the privilege of previewing as it was in progress (yes, I am the Peter Amsel William mentioned), so it is wonderful ton hear the end result receive such positive reviews – it definitely deserves to be listened to as something that is far more than a pastiche of something else.

    Thanks again,
