Grey composed this duet in January of 2007 as a gift to Cindy on the occasion of her 52nd birthday (he turned 52 himself 17 days later). Dividing the number 52 by four, he decided to construct the tune in a meter of 13 beats to the bar, but despite his best numerological intentions, a few 14-beat measures elbowed their way in. Scandinavian in melody and harmony and Balkan in rhythm – two full decks with the jokers thrown in for good measure. Sheet music is available.
