Sunday Music

Hello and welcome to a new edition of Sunday Music, right from sunny Franconia : A sunny & slightly windy day greets us, with the first faint hint of autumn. The colour changed a bit, the fields are (partly) already harvested, the very first leaves are falling, while the authorities have small airplanes circling over the silvan regions of Franconia to watch out for early signs of fire : It is all dry, much too dry.
Without further ado, today’s Sunday Music is a little song written by Ken HENSLEY (Ger., Eng.), titled What Should Be Done, published first on the 1971 Uriah Heep lp Look At Yourself  (Ger., Eng.). I hope you like it. May we all face an easy, peaceful week.

The last week blurred by. Yesterday saw me working, it is one of two days in the course of the year when we additionally have to  drive on a Saturday ; sometime in July there will be additional working hours on a regular working day, nothing extra-ordinary, it’s all in the contract.
Today I did nearly nothing, or just the usual, reading, and searching for further information about what I have read – in this case parts of the autobiography of Rudolf ROCKER (1873-1958) (Ger., Eng.), maybe I’ll write a post about him.
I felt no inclination to step out today, what is a shame, because it was a very nice day, clear sky, sunlight, wind … tomorrow, not now.
So let’s without further ado proceed to today’s Sunday Music. It is a piece written by Maneli JAMAL, who performs it together with Andrew YORK (Eng.), titled Southern Magnolia.
I hope you enjoy the music – may we all have a peaceful week ahead.

Sunday Music, Monday Edition

I’m sorry for being late. Yesterday I was travelling again, this time not to & from Suebia, but lovely Middle Franconia needed my attention. In fact I was invited, and the invitation was corroborated with a short email to make sure that I really show up. What I dutifully did. There is a chance that I’ll return into the bookmine for some time, but there is still nothing guaranteed. But after all those years, all involved seem to have reached the understanding that this business needs to be finished, and in a decent way. Let’s hope that this feeling prevails and results in a nice contract with even nicer pay – one may dream after all ! Today was back to the usual grind, five weeks to go until summer holidays start.
Today’s Sunday Music is (a part of) a little cantata by Antonio VIVALDI (1678-1741) (Ger., Eng.) titled “Cessate, omai Cessate” (RV 684), performed by A. SCHOLL and the Ensemble 415 (1981-2012) under Chiara BANCHINI (Ger., Eng.). Don’t let the dark text fool you, it all looks good here. And I hope it does look good for You in Your world too. I hope you enjoy the music, may we all have a peaceful week.

The last week simply was : Sleeping, driving, writing applications, repeat. Sorry for the no-news.
I’m back from Suebia (again), look for a niece piece of music (again), and today opted for the “easy way out”, for an “evergreen” : Monsieur TRENET (Ger., Eng.) with La Mer (Ger., Eng.) – what else ?
For the more adventurous among my venerated readers, here is a jazzy version by Django REINHARDT.
I hope you enjoy the music. May we all have a relaxed week that is good to us.
