Emily Bronte - Remembrance

Happy 196th birthday to Emily Bronte, one of my favorite writers. Her major achievement was the novel Wuthering Heights, but she wrote poetry as well. Here the reading is by Stella Gonet.

Alfred Deller - I Am A Poor Wayfaring Stranger

Some more Deller, here doing the same song I recently posted in the Charlie Haden version. The guitarist is not identified in the source I have.

Alfred Deller - Sweet Kate

Oops. Got so busy both Saturday and Sunday mornings that I forgot to post at all. Never done that before. How about a little more Alfred Deller? Here again he is accompanied by Desmond Dupre on the lute, with Mark Deller, who I believe is his son, as second countertenor.

Children and Art (from Sunday In The Park With George)

Lately I've been listening to this soundtrack, and for some reason this song in particular stands out. Bernadette Peters, who originated the role on Broadway, plays the second of her roles, Marie the grandmother.
