"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Sunday Reflection

  1. A wonderfully evocative piece, accompanied today by the most exquisite and absolutely appropriate images - you have triumphed yet again, CE, in bringing us the very best.

    RVW is, IMHO, too often overlooked as one of the very finest of composers of his time - that his family tree includes such luminaries as Charles Darwin and Josiah Wedgwood comes as no surprise whatever!

    Thank you once more for adding some fine music to my Sunday morning!

  2. The thanks must go to TheClassicalFun, Opsimath, who put it all together. All I did was find it. He/she has posted many interesting pieces on YouTube - I'm currently listening to Schubert No.5 :-) As ever, you're welcome, and thank you for your comments.
