"Anne McCaffrey contacted us when she began writing Masterharper Robinton's life story. She wanted to include some of his music in the book, and asked if we would write it. Through a series of unfortunate circumstances, the book was published without the music. But meanwhile, the concept had grown from a handful of tunes to a full 50 minute CD of songs and instrumentals, using Anne's lyrics from the original Pern books, plus some expanded lyrics she wrote for this project."
