a. I have Dona Nobis Pacem, 1977, three of my whisphered spoken words
manipulated as entire piece
b. WITH LOVE, a fantasy for Live Cello & Decorated Cello Cases, in memory of
Myrtle Hollins Adelberg, and first prize win program Bourges 1986, uses
dialogue a great deal and the following are partial program notes about the speach:
Adelberg Rudow used dialogue as instruments. Sentences or phrases became
counterpoint, different peoples' spoken words were used as texture variation or
percussive accent, and emotion or experiences were used as instrumental

c. I have other works using dialogue similar but not the same as WITH LOVE:
