From Alwyn, I went first to Vaughan Williams and then onto Gustav Holst. Listening to his Beni Mora Suite at the moment. This is an old recording with Holst himself conducting.



I also found, on YouTube Vaughan Williams Norfolk Rhapsody 2, which I hadn't heard before. I love the first Norfolk Rhapsody, and really enjoyed this one.

Space Adventure by Martin Slavin

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

While I'm always open to something new, I have 2 "go-to" performers that give me great enjoyment; James Marsters reading Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series and Stephen Briggs reading Terry Pratchett. I am quite happy to re-listen to a favorite book as I am to immersing myself in something new.

Here's an interesting juxtaposition. Immerse yourself in 50+ chapters of Harry Dresden as the Winter Knight serving Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness and then move from that to the Wee Free Men. That can color your perception of Tiffany Aching's journey in the land of Faerie in most interesting (and frightening) ways.

I have just downloaded that last two Dresden books, Masters is really good as a narrator, John Glover did #13 Ghost Story not as good but OK.

Therion - J'ai le mal de toi (cover of some older French song)


Thomas Vikström is really a great singer.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

The Piano Guys mix Disney's "Let it Go" (from Frozen) with Vivaldi's "Winter" from The Four Seasons. :D

I just heard this on youtube but Mici is still sitting in the concert hall having heard her play this just before the interval of the concert featuring the soloist Sol Gabetta that she is attending this evening



I would love to be there as well, fantastic playing
