Nicely baroque.
Which Queen?
Not the ocean liner I assume - did you have a Nederlandish Queen Mary?
..the vessel was heavier because “dead sheep do not have the same weight as the live ones”

Always thought it was an original made by Wendy Carlos for Clockwork Orange. Only to discover it's a piece by Henry Purcell... :doh:

Very nice! Gets better as you go along. Reminds me a bit of George Crumb's adaptations of earlier music in pieces like "Black Angels". Always nice to see some hybridization of old and new here.

Thanx! Never heard of George Crumb but will check it out! Always good to discover new music :-)

Oh.. didn't realise it was a cover. :eek:
and ah that Queen Mary - yas, she's Dutch. :coffee-cheers:

I know the Carlos version too :doh:
At least I got the period right .. phew! :mrgreen:

I've noticed recently I've developed a love for the Baroque and earlier :sb:
