Description My composer-friend George Willink invited me to present some of my music on a new-music concert at the historic San Ysidro Church in Corrales, New Mexico. Since a grand piano was to be brought in for the concert, I composed these nocturnes for the occasion and premiered them there.

Corrales is near the historic route from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. The first nocturne is warm and singing. It recalls evening gatherings and concerts in the "city different." Corrales is located in the bosque, the gallery-forest in the flood-plain of the Rio Grande. The bosque at night can be a "spooky" place.
