Music Monday--Ralph Vaughan Williams

This is another of my favorite pieces--Fantasy on a Theme by Thomas Tallis by Ralph Vaughan Williams.  When my dh was a senior in college, he conducted the wind ensemble version of this piece.

This clip is from the movie Williamstowne by Richard Horian.  It is set completely to music by Vaughan Williams and is a ballet-like telling of a poignant story of love, loss, and moving on.

This music seems to absorb me. Usually I absorb the music I am listening to, but in this case, it draws me to it. Make sense? Btw, I really liked the nature video you had posted originally. Can I have the link to it?

There really *is* something about this music, isn't there?

Here's the link to the original. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-kWBOvfwdg

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
