Sorry I was late getting around to this Swift, other requests and distractions… I hope this is a reasonable transcript for you. I hope you’ll forgive my flurries in the D-zone…

These waltzes are often found in the company of one another…

Haha, not at all, very impressive in fact. I should probably sit down and crack this ABC thing, there’s a good few tunes I’ve wanted to post myself.
