Thanks Rick.

I'm reading your "Introduction To Common Music" tonight which I found
somewhere on the web. Though all of the Stella/Capella (and Thread!) stuff
may not be applicable now it certainly gives me some insight into some of
CM's "philosophical foundations" (I'd guess). =)

I just can't get over the "elegance" of the whole Lisp/Music thing!

Thanks again for your help.
