    Formative piece for me in my elementary school years.


    I used to sit on my dad's lap and listen to our LP of this.

    Who can help loving the 'can-can' from Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld - regularly played on Children's Favourites on the radio, and also as a short clip on the BBC in the 1950s.

    I remember as a teenager really loving this one - Chinese Dance, from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Wuite.

    Liszt - Hungarian Rhapsody. My teenage sister bought this on an EP with her hard won pocket money. Love it!

    Medieval carol, Ther is no rose of swych vertu.

    This is a lovely version, too.

    Happy Christmas to all. Peace & Joy.

    Vivaldi's Gloria - something that only became a favourite in recent years. But once heard - who can resist? Here is 'the famous bit' sung by The Sixteen. Ravishing.

    This is a favourite of mine after I heard my husband playing it on the piano. It's so beautiful & evocative. The details I give below, but would just add that it is commonly referred to as 'Tolling Bells'.

    CHOPIN Prelude 6 op 28 B minor - Michel Mananes CD

    This Coranto by William Byrd became a favourite of mine after I heard my husband practising it for his piano lessons. It's lovely.
