Written for Don Nemiroff on ...

Written for Don Nemiroff on the occasion of his 60th birthday. In the six bars 27-32, the 1st couple are tracing the shape of mirrored 6's, while in bars 33-40, the six dancers inscribe the shape »0«. The two figures together honour Don's big day.

The description suggests »Snow in Summer« from the Berkeley Scottish Players album, »A Camp of Pleasure«.
