Leonard's Compositions

After Leonard's death we came into possession of several pieces of sheet music containing original compositions by Leonard Pennario. Some of them were in pencil in his own handwritting! The lyrics to Midnight On The Cliffs, were written by Leonard, but those for the other songs were written by someone else, see the list below.

One thing that one notices about these compositions is that only the bare outline of the piece is given. See the original handwritten version of Midnight On The Cliffs. Now compare it to the piece as Leonard actually recorded it. Quite a difference! One can only assume that had Leonard recorded or performed the other songs written around the same time, that they too would have undergone a similar transformation. Obviously Leonard kept most of his compositions in his head, not in his filing cabinet!
