Re: Track of the week

Track #30. Fratres, by Arvo Part. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pk0cAciEuIY Performed here by Mari Samuelson and Trondheim soloists. Part made several versions of Fratres; I think this is the version known as Fratres for Violin, Strings, and Percussion. On the CD I have, there are also versions fo...

Track #29. Mass in D by Antonin Dvorak, op 86. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5l6yRRDPyd8 This youtube version is easily the best I found. I can't translate the Czech, but it seems to be a small but good quality choir based in Prague singing a chamber version of the work. The soloists are very good...

Re: One month in - BFA impressions

I hate that it's become a full-time job just to gear up sufficiently for Normal. Instances are underwhelming, mostly just a movement check so far. Can't see me levelling many toons. Some of the levelling was horribly grindy and boring - kill 15 of those, then 6 of those, etc etc. Stormsong was espec...

Track #28. Sinfonietta, by Leos Janacek Here's a recording by the Halle Orchestra under Mark Elder at a BBC prom in 2011: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aFTv50AoEQ The great composers generate a unique, immediately identifiable, sound picture. So it is with Janacek. Nothing else sounds like it. Th...

Re: Track of the week

Track #27. Talk to me of Mendocino, by Kate and Anna McGarrigle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7KsDv1K8-k Very evocative. I listen to their albums quite a lot, both the English records and the French. There is often a social commentary in their songs, coupled to a sweetness of melody and harmony....

Track #26. Symphony No 3 in C minor, Op 78 'Organ', by Camille Saint-Saëns Played here by the Orchestre de Paris conducted by Paavo Jarvi at a BBC prom (turn up the volume!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWCZq33BrOo I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have here accomplished, I will...

Re: Social Application - Dendrofob

Good luck with the app. If you really want to raid, i would suggest to apply for raider right away. I can not see any advantage in applying for social, as that is kind of where you would end up anyway if the raider app fails for whatever reason.

Re: Track of the week

Track #25. The Music Weaver, by Sandy Denny. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9haVapOCplc&start_radio=1&list=RD9haVapOCplc Hard to listen to this without crying. Sandy Denny died in 1978 in odd circumstances, possibly suicide and possibly not. What a loss. Some of her other songs are better known, "I...

Re: Track of the week

Track #24. Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis, by Ralph Vaughan-Wiliams https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihx5LCF1yJY For me, this is the sound of how it is to be English. Written in 1910 and designed to be played in Gloucester Cathedral, the orchestra is split into three distant parts as in this re...
