Prose, Praise & Appreciation

 

An Index-in-Progress to the Writings

of Adam Victor Christensen

 

"Out of the abundance of the heart

the mouth speaketh ..."

Matthew 12:34

 

This is an index-in-progress to my writing. Supporting links to the individual pieces and to the creative artists featured in them are provided wherever possible and will continue to be added as part of the ongoing project. Selections from the reviews are presented at CD re:Views Many of these pieces first appeared in the Folk Harp Journal, a quarterly publication of the International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen.
