Evening Bell

Every so often you come across a piece of music that stuns you into silence and makes you realise that the world would be a poorer place without it.

Over the years pieces such as Mahler 2, Kashmir (Led Zeppelin), Crying (Roy Orbison and KD Lang, Lotus Blossom (Duke Ellington) have brought me much pleasure and some time ago I came acrioss the Russian folk song “Evening Bell”

There are a number of versions on Youtube but for me this is the most beautiful………..and I have asked for it to be played at my funeral, which I hope is not for a very long time!

If you do not respond to the beauty of the singing you have no soul……….
