Sunday Respite – Somewhat Forgotten


More saxophone sounds from Claude Ciari. Great photography adds to the summer time feel. I have posted a couple of his performances before and I think this is close to the top of the list.

I suggest watching it in full screen.



Wishing you a wonderful day.


Sunday Respite – This Majestic Land


What a wonderful patriotic weekend we had with our President pulling out all the stops. First at Mount Rushmore, then in D.C. honoring the service men and women with a great fly over including vintage air planes. The D.C fireworks were exceptional with the 1812 Overture as the background music except Fox chose not to cover it. Go figure… I had to go to CNN which had to spend half the time doing commercials.  But this work should put us back in the spirit of the weekend.

I suggest watching it in full screen.

This Majestic Land – Michael Hoppé

Have a wonderful day with much peace.


Happy Easter!

He has Risen, he has Risen indeed!

From Andre Rieu’s “Live From Radio City Music Hall” in New York City 2004, with the Johann Strauss Orchestra and the Harlem Gospel Choir.

Happy Easter to everyone.

Sunday respite: ‘Oh come, oh come Emmanuel’

Sunday, a time for reflection at this special time of year. Sugarland does an unusual and moving rendition of this timeless piece.
