The Zintsmaster Symphonies (Symphonies 5-7)

When I was studying composition in the 1970s, everything progressive had to be atonal. Before my undergraduate studies were complete, the fashion turned to Minimalism. I have lost count of how many times the progressive style has changed over the decades. As a church organist, my fellow musicians recommended the virtues of modern modal compositions. I composed a number of pieces in that style. By 2003, after a career change to geography, I began experimenting for my own amusement with what might be called "counterfactual classical." This style is based upon hypothetical musical questions about the development of style – the “what if” proposition.
