"Food for Fun" in early classical style is a light-hearted blessing. SATB, piano (actually, harpsichord is best) Makes a nice encore piece with reception and goodies following concert or before a banquet. If you'd like to hear and see a digitized version of the piece to get a gist of it, go to, click on "Repertoire" and click on "Food for Fun". If you'd like a copy of the score, feel free to e-mail me at
