I’ve decided to replace Sunday Poetry this week with Sunday Song. I’m beside myself with excitement because this afternoon I’m heading off to the Arts Centre in Melbourne to see the brilliant Bryn Terfel in concert singing Broadway Classics with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. My lovely friends at work bought me the ticket for my birthday & I’ve had a calendar on the wall over my desk marking off the days until the concert.
You can see my collection of Bryn CDs above & if you’ve never heard the Welsh Wonder, there are many clips on YouTube here. I especially love his versions of English folk songs & his recordings of Gerald Finzi, George Butterworth, Vaughan Williams & Benjamin Britten are my favourites. Maybe he’ll sing The Foggy, Foggy Dew as an encore? Whatever he sings will be a treat & to see him in person will be wonderful.
More Sunday Poetry next week when I’ve calmed down a little.
