Unsung Heroes III

We are very pleased to present this e-cital entitled Unsung Heroes, Part III, dedicated to the efforts of those composers who poured their lives and resources into largely thankless work. In a modest attempt to right this wrong we all hope that, through this presentation, these long-hidden treasures may be brought to light and introduced to a wider audience.

We wish to thank our performers who have devoted many hours to preparation of these pieces, and hope they may receive their well-deserved mead of appreciation from others.

We wish to thank you, the listener, for taking the the time to download and hear these performances and hope you enjoy them! We cordially invite you to participate in our discussion board - just click the linked number under the "Discussion" column.

To use this page, you need to have Adobe Flash Player; if you can play YouTube videos, you should be able to use the embedded player here. Click the "?" on each player to view additional info, including the performer's own tags, while the recording plays.

NOTE: E-cital suffered a drastic hacking attack followed by a catastrophic hard drive failure which has eliminated all of the previous comments. Given the short timeframe between these two events, we did not have time to establish a redundancy system. We apologize, therefore, not only for the spotty availabilty during the former events but also for the lost comments during the latter.

And now, without further ado...
