Summer Countdown: Day 21

I changed the one note in Prelude (no fugue) No. 4 that I was unsure about.

I futzed around and designed an iTunes “album cover” for Six Preludes (No Fugues). I just hate to see my music in iTunes with one of those blanks. It makes me feel like some unappreciated amateur. Oh, wait…
