A reader writes from Canada

I don’t know if you have heard of this Greek-Canadian composer before, but even if he writes a lot of sacred music, he is one of the contemporary composers whose art music is most often played in the (secular) world.

“I feel strongly that
with my music, I am trying

At best, I am a follower, not a master,
and my MASTER holds the patterns
and patents of my being and work.
So, in the best of circumstances,
I can only think of myself
as an imitator.”
