Inspired by and composed for the comfort of a friend whose elderly mother had just died.

REVIEW: “Once again, a mere 99 cents gets you the latest piano piece, ‘Melancholic Hope,’ from the founder of RE/Search Publications. Composed for a friend whose mother had just passed away, these seven minutes from V. Vale are what I’d want to hear should heaven ever allow me entry."
