My apologies for being late, noticeably late this time. Nobody around I could blame except me. But Suebia plays a part in this too, maybe things do become little light under this sky ?
Like last Sunday. One drives around a bit, and – of course ! – finds oneself at a scenic outlook (they have lots of scenic outlooks here), in front of a church of pilgrimage.
And while one hangs out in this church minding one’s own business, the organist starts to practise. Some titles were beyond recognition, at least for me, but I am not really in church music, while I think I know some of the old howlers when I encounter them.
And while one sits & wonders, the priest steps in and starts a devotion for the mourners, a very well fitting meditation. Thankfully, due to the virus, singing is not allowed during religious events – but I think I would have been wise enough to keep my mouth shut anyway ; too many people would think I try to make a mockery of the event when it simply is ineptitude that causes my terrible singing, I am not able to hit a right note.
After all this we were floating over the land like a cloud, pretty aimlessly – and “bang !” – you find yerself in front of a very large & impressive cloister, a real “fortress of faith”, eine Glaubensfestung. And because we are in the rich neighbourhood now, the organist plays the Goldbergvariationen (Ger., Eng.) without braking a sweat, tah – rodomont !
Since all this was a little exhausting & draining, Monday was a day of doing nothing, while Tuesday was spent on a (Suebian) mountain (they’d call it a hill somewhere else, but when in Rome …), and in the valley of a wild mountain “river”, thankfully it comes with a Biergarten.
Enough of my Suebian shenanigans.
This Sunday Music is a piece composed by Mr HAENDEL, from his opera Alcina (Ger., Eng.) a “sinfonia”. I hope you enjoy the music. Hopefully the week was good for you up to now, may it continue.
