Beauty

There is one composer that I hold in the highest esteem. One whose works just thrust into your soul and shiver you throughout...Ralph Vaughan-Williams.

A London Symphony is what ought to be played at my funeral but this - Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis is sheer romance, faultless love, desperate desire, unending devotion...it is God.

Bless anyone capable of making such sounds in the world. And bless that man for putting them all in a row...I needed that beauty just now...
