I have a honour to introduce to you „Te Deum laudamus” by Giovanni Paisiello (1740-1816).

      Good evening, Marsha. Yes, I have two adult sons. The elder one is an artist (a painter), the younger has just graduated from the University of Warsaw. How about you, Marsha? Do you have children?

      • I have one adult step-son who is a teacher, inventor and works for the State of California. He was 25 when I married my husband nearly 20 years ago. You sons sound very successful, and you sound very proud of them, so how wonderful is that? 🙂

    Yes, Marsha, I am very proud of my sons. I am very grateful to you for giving me the opportunity to become acquainted with your son🙂
