    Great stuff! Speaking of Seasons, do you know Glazunov's "The Seasons"? It was composed about 200 years after
    Vivaldi's , and in a totally different style, of course, but it has some splendid music. Autumn, in particular, has an
    exhilarating, bounding melody that you might well recognize.
    Also, it's nice to see some Classical music making an appearance. Almost all of the singers/groups talked about in
    this thread are ones that I've never heard of, or at least never heard, so the discussions don't mean much to a
    person whose preferences in music are for classical, opera, traditional folk (which is NOT Kumbaya or If I had
    a Hammer etc., but something very different. O.K., mini-rant over. But this is rather a sore point with dedicated
    folkies), musicals, pre-rock standards, some jazz, ( not all, but a lot. "Free" is w-e-i-r-d ). I did have a smallish
    collection of rock records when I was at University,(that should be "in College" on this side of the Atlantic,
    shouldn't it?) but it wasn't for actually listening to, let alone taking seriously. It had two purposes, apart from
    background music at parties. One, to appear "cool" in front of friends and colleagues,( who of course had the same
    idea about their records). Two, optimistically, as an aid for seduction. I have no intention of telling how
    successful they were in either of these objectives.
    It's nearly 2a.m. and there are two dogs still need to be taken out, so goodnight and happy listening/reading.

    P.S. "Nice to see Classical music making an appearance" is not in any way a complaint or criticism of the posts
    about contemporary music, (and the videos, some of which I really enjoy). If people who mostly prefer other
    genres (e.g. me) are too lazy to get off their butts and post about THEIR current listening, they can't
    complain that their tastes aren't represented. Though shouldn't that be "get ON their butts? Have you ever
    tried to use a laptop standing up?

    "Have You Met Miss Jones" by Rodgers and Hart.
    Art Tatum and Ben Webster Quartet, from a 1956 or so Pablo record. The album has an autumnal feel to it, with Art Tatum at his most accessible, and Ben Webster in a mellow mood.

    a) Neat post, trappa.

    b) I'm listening to (today, not all at once):

    Mozart-Marriage of Figaro

    Vaughan Williams-Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis
    ( a strong contender for the most beautiful piece of music ever written)

    Brass Monkey-Sound and Rumour

    Baltimore Consort-The Art of the Bawdy Song
    ( including The Miller's Daughter,My Lady and her Maid,
    Sir Walter enjoying his Damsel, and My man John had a thing that was long.
    All 17th. Century. Were you thinking that sex only came into popular song in
    the 1970's?)

    Ouch! It's 4a.m. here in the Pacific Northwest.
    Read well, listen well, sleep well.

    Colinglithero, I second your opinion re the Fantasia On A Theme Of Thomas Tallis.

    I just listened t some Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell numbers. Here is one to share.

    If you have not heard her before, here is an introduction to Kathleen Ferrier, the British contralto who wowed the classical music world in her ten year career. She died young of breast cancer.
    In the clip below she sings Schumann's song, "Widmung".
