Finding some great music

frmo w
Instead of going to the Donation in Kind book sorting room this morning - because I have a sniffle and slight cough -I have a free three hours to go to youtube and find music and even download five pages of piano music! Here are some finds: to print out Mozart Piano Concerto 21 Andante go to - I've been wanting this music for a long time but there are no shops in Geelong that sell classical music these days. I really don't like most of Mozart, but he certainly got it right for this one! You can watch it, listen to it on

Another favourite piece of music is from the old movie 'Diva' - a French film from 1981. - it's an aria from La Wally called Ebben? Ne andro lontana. Don't ask me the meaning though!

Next one - I already play on the piano - it's haunting and exquisite. Erik Satie's Gymnopedie No 1 on

And lastly, the Humming Chorus from Madam Butterfly by Puccini -

Yesterday I played the music at a funeral for an elderly gentleman from our church - the piano for 15 minutes, then the organ. I really like the piano best to play. The organ can get shrill and also I dislike any hint of tremolo. When it's my turn to turn up my toes, I'd like a full symphony orchestra to play (ha ha) and maybe go out to the Ride of the Valkyries! Maybe make them all squirm through half a dozen operatic areas - Song to the Moon and so on.

And here are a couple of pictures though the horses don't seem to have necks. It was an illustration to a story about going through a cave near a waterfall to discover a cult that worshipped JFK! Scratchboard - making white lines on black, then I did a reverse.
