I just got home and see all of these lovely 60s pieces. As a Child of the 60s, here is my contribution. The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin's "Chain of Fools."

Now, I know you guys like a bit classical on a Sunday. Classical music is not really my thing but I do like spiritual music like this ... just too beautiful.



If anyone can point me in the direction of a CD collection like this I'd be grateful.


Guitar since 1966. Piano (Kawai DP80) since 2011.

I played this twice this morning CaptainKawai. Absolutely beautiful! I have a CD called "Choral Masterpieces" with Robert Shaw conducting the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. Mozart's "Ave Verum Corpus" is one of the pieces included in that collection. I've always loved it. The CD is on the Telarc label.

It would be hard to know what else you might like on that CD. Here is one from that CD collection that I particularly enjoy, "He Watching Over Israel" from Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn. While I was unable to locate the performance from the CD I mentioned, I think the performance by Seattle Pro Musica is quite lovely. I hope you enjoy it.

Good morning everyone. It's a sunny spring morning in Minneapolis, my nasty bug has nearly vanished! I'm still trying to catch up with all of these wonderful postings from the week. I'm almost there. Of course, I have some classical music to share today. Thanks CaptainKawai for the Mozart. I share your connection with that beautiful choral selection.

My next selection is a piano transcription by Franz Liszt, "Die Lorelei." The pianist is Wolfgang Wagenhaeuser.

Plan on spending some uninterrupted quality time with my final post for today! It's worth it! You may want to put on the headphones and crank up the volume!

Here is "Bolero" performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Great stuff, Griffin, as usual.

Spiritual music, CaptainKawai? Do you mean with a religious theme or music in the spirirt of an invocation?

Rutter's Pie Jesu is one in the former category and Massenet's Meditation is kind of in that area.

The slow movements of Haydn's String Quartets move me spiritually but don't have that purpose nor does the Intermezzo to Bizet's Carmen. But these pieces make me feel as if I've died and gone to Heaven.

I somehow managed to catch the latest double bill of The Bridge - yet another Scandi-thriller! - late last night on iplayer after getting back from a conference.

Anyone following The Bridge will recognise this as the title and credits music:



Right, back to work.... :-(
I will have to catch up with all the lovely music here later in the week...

Captain Kawai, I’m glad to see your contribution to Sunday postings. You’re right, that choral work is really spiritual and beautiful. Very good choice!


Griffin, it’s fantastic you’ve posted a recording of Leontyne Price again. The more I listen to this soprano, the more I love her voice. And I’ve found beautiful voices in The Nathaniel Dett Chorale as well.

I’m surprised the “Bolero” by Ravel hasn’t been posted before. I love this music and this was an excellent version. This piece is not easy to play or conducting. It’s very difficult to maintain the tension and the rhythm along the piece, I think.

Richard, very interesting selections of yours as usual. I didn’t know that Requiem, another great discover from this thread!

Eglantine, sorry to hear you have to work on Sunday. I hope you will be hugely rewarded, at least wink.

Lots here to catch up with - birthday wishes to Richard, lots of music, and i still have to record my piece for the ABF recital.......
But more imporantly, Prince fever here has reached unfathomable heights....at least for me anyway crazy

Enjoyed the concert on Friday night. But better than that, I managed to score a ticket to his "secret" aftershow party on Saturday night. It was phenominal to say the least.

So while the rest of Sydney was sleeping early Sunday morning, myself and 399 other lucky fans were watching Prince shredding a new guitar (after he threw his Honher into the crowd earlier that evening at the Arena concert).

Good morning everyone! It's going to be another beautiful cough free day for me! YAY!! I also happen to have time for a few postings. I happened to be listening to some tunes of an acquaintance, and this tune by Donovan came up to the surface. It brought back some good memories. I thought I'd share it with you.

How about a little Roy Orbitson folks! I saw an old rerun of him a few weeks ago on Austin City Limits. What a talent! Enjoy!

It's been awfully quiet around here today. Since I'm making some progress with the extra time I have on the piano, I'll go back to that. However, I'll leave you with this; Stevie Wonder performing "Lately."
Enjoy!

Griffin - "Catch The Wind" - a great song. As a would be songwriter I have an interest in opening lines and "in the chilly hours and minutes of uncertainty" is one of the best.

Griffin, the Big O's Black and White Night is one of those concerts I can keep coming back to time and time again.
Thanks for posting that.

I've been quiet because I've been enjoying the 26th recital postings. There's some fabulous work put out there. I'm really impressed.

Here's a song that's better known in it's cover version, which has always left me feeling a little empty. The original had a pathos that's not there in Manilow's Mandy. This is a regular in my guitar repertoire.

Morning everyone! Richard, I'm glad you enjoyed the Big O yesterday. Elssa, thanks for the Stevie Wonder posting! I can't think of anything he has done that I have not liked. Today is a work day for me, and I am just getting ready to go to the office.

BTW, I've been listening to some of the recital postings as well. There are so many wonderful performances. I won't be able to finish listening to them for the next few days, however. Congratulations to all of you who participated. I can see that a lot of good solid work went into each of the performances I got to hear.

Off to work I go! Have a great day everyone!
