Georgy Sviridov | “Trisagion” (Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us.)
Breathtakingly beautiful. Thanks to my good friend Bryan for sending this to me today.
Odetta | “Hit or Miss”
findout: “How to perform silence? Perhaps only John Cage could answer that because many of his musical work consisted of it. Joan La Barba is in Mexico and she assures that Cage was one of the most misunderstood musicians because of this; she worked with him for almost 20 years and still finds it difficult to perform the silence and for us to listen to it. I love his complete works for violin and piano, here number III.”
Lovely sounds for a damp, drizzly evening. Thanks findout.
The Waterboys with Tomas Mac | “The Stolen Child”
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.
–William Butler Yeats, “The Collected Poems”
