musical reality

I Never cry. And I tend to take great pride in that.

But for some reason, now, when I listen to Canon in D, I go to pieces. Badly.

Maybe that’s because, to understand a musical piece, you have to see it. And I do not mean see somebody play it out on the Violin.

I saw it.

    Good one, Frank. I had to stop myself from weeping several times, but not because of the song…

    I cry most every time I play it on my violin with Richard and Hannah. We go into rounds and 3 part harmony its gorgeous.

    Ooh. I didn’t notice this at first, but depending on how largely your viewing this photo, it makes the musicians look really funny.

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
