Sunday Respite – Wind Beneath My Wings

 

For today’s respite I chose Richard Clayderman – Wind Beneath My Wings. Best wishes go to all the fathers as we celebrate Father’s Day today. Wishing you a wonderful day.

This week the wheel turns as many celebrate the Summer Solstice on Thursday, June 21st. The longest day of the year.

As we endured the darkest and longest night around December 21, we kept the vision of summer’s light and bliss in our hearts, and this too keeps hope alive. We understand the cyclical nature of all that lives and our dependence on the balance of light and darkness, life, and death. Midsummer is when all life is at its zenith. We honor life, ours and all that live. We bask in the light and enjoy its blessings, ever remembering the returning darkness is necessary for the cycle of life and death to remain in balance. From Litha, Summer bliss

Memorial Day – ‘Bugler’s Holiday’

 

We remember all those who have given so much so that we may have a day with friends and family. It seems fitting to honor the humble “Bugler Boy.”

Here is presented “Bugler’s Holiday” by Leroy Anderson, composed in 1954. This is the original version played by Leroy Anderson and the Boston Pops Orchestra’

Wishing everyone an enjoyable day.

 

Sunday Respite – The Phantom Regiment

 

For today’s Sunday Respite  I chose  “The Phantom Regiment” composed by Leroy Anderson in 1951.

The theme is a nameless body of soldiers approaching from a distance to the sound of trumpets. The nearer they draw, the louder the music sounds until finally the regiment draws away into the distance.

The accompanying photographs are in a similar aspect showing marching regiments from around the world……

Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

 

Sunday Respite – ‘I will sing with the spirit’

 

For today’s respite commemorating Whit Sunday, I chose The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square performing John Rutter’s “I Will Sing with the Spirit.”

Pentecost is a Christian holiday commemorating the descent of the Holy Ghost upon the disciples of Jesus Christ, according to the New Testament of the Bible. It is also known as Whitsunday, or Whit Sunday.

In many parts of the world, Pentecost has become a traditional day for baptisms to take place. On this day, many people enjoy family gatherings, picnics, or outings to the country. Pentecost is called “the Green Holiday” in Poland. It is a time when people decorate their houses with green branches to bring blessings on the home and the people living in it.

As recorded in the New Testament of the Bible, it was on the 50th day after Easter that the apostles were praying together and the Holy Spirit descended on them. They received the “gift of tongues”, the ability to speak in other language and immediately began to preach about Jesus Christ to Jewish people from all over the world who flocked to Jerusalem for the Feast of Shavuot. Read more

I will sing with the Spirit.
Alleluia, alleluia…

And I will sing with the understanding also,
alleluia, alleluia
