I wrote to you some time ago about a Goya project for which
David Sylvester wanted to use radiophonic music, in that case
variations on Beethoven quartets.

I am now going to make an Omnibus about Goya, without Sylvester
or Beethoven, and I'd like to use the workshop and one of your
composers to do some original sound for the film.   Would this
be possible?   I'm shooting in mid-May, and editing June-July,
but if you're able to assign someone to this I'd very much
welcome an early discussion with them.
