Pachelbel's Canon in D
waiting to be played again,
the room illuminated
- for one precious moment -

Time is still a-flying
"What is love? 'Tis not hereafter;
Present mirth has present laughter;
What's to come is still unsure.
In delay there lies no plenty,
Then come and kiss me sweet and twenty;
Youth's a stuff will not endure."
Shakespeare, Twelfth Night
-> Canon in D, from "London Symphony Orchestra Plays Great Classics"
-> "Gatter ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying" - poem by Robert Herrick

What a sweet post to appeal to all senses! I've not played the canon at a piano for many years, but this makes me remember how I love the piece. Beautiful images and a lovely Shakespeare quote. I saw Twelfth Night recently and loved the production.ReplyDelete
How I wish for that beautiful music to radiate. have a great weekend :)ReplyDelete
This moment feels like the wisp of a dream....musical, visual, poetic...dreamy...ReplyDelete
I can hear the music!ReplyDelete
Even if I am not familiar with the music...
I love the photography...
Well, I'm also listening to music this morning. Red Fang, a beer drinking heavy metal bandReplyDelete
Can't go wrong with Canon In DReplyDelete
Thank you all for your kind comments! :-)ReplyDelete
That was one of my mother's favourite pieces. Very soothing.ReplyDelete
And Twelfth Night is one of my favourite Shakespearean plays. I've seen several productions and have a film version from the 90s.
