    Oh gosh, it's really here! I'm so proud of this tribute to your grandfather. Here's to all the brave Italian immigrant mandolinists who came here to forge a new life but kept the village dances alive so that we could continue to enjoy them. Mille Grazie! Ben fatto! Sheri P.S. I just love seeing my Grauso mandolin on the front cover!

    Top Shelf !!! Complimenti !!! Finalmente ! Someone has gotten this music right !!! Che gioia!!! Your grandfather and mine--who played this music would be so very proud of you and the work you have done....!! So glad I recalled immediately upon hearing that snippet on the podcast that itcwas Delirio D'Amore-- Mazurka by Onofrio DiBella. A staple at every midnight serenade here in Philadelphia and in NYC for over a century.. So glad I even have recordings of it which are on the Audio Dropbox as well ad the sheetmusic. So glad that Sheri and I collaborated on all of this over the last several years to help bring it all to light again and pass on the torch to future generations. Delirio D'Amore and all of the other titles on the CD are classics in the genre. "Il suo lavoro mi tocca il cuore"!! "Your work touches the heart:!!! Ad Multos Annos !!!
