"A Song of Thanksgiving"

I've been listening to this piece by Vaughan Williams over, and over recently. It's bright, and hopeful. Just the sort of noise I need these daze. Sure it has a Christian lens so what it's still bright.

Vaughan Williams originally wrote this to celebrate the end of the Horrors of the Second World War.

Most of Williams stuff is seriously swell. 'Been into it since I was a kiddie. My Uncle Louis had old 78rpms of his works. He also had tons of Swing sides too, but his straight stuff was neat as well.

If you have 15 minutes, and are of a mind for this sort'a thing put on headphones, and listen.

Stay Tuned.
