Suggestion #1

I have a distinct impression that Baroque music just seems to fit with a Winter snowscape scene better than any other.


Note: This is my Mum's garden in Scotland. There isn't nearly as much here in Mercia. In fact, there's hardly any.

oooo... There is sky at teh bottom of your blog...

I think you are right - that music fits very well, although my head always goes north to scandinavia in this weather, and of course, goes down the traditional root, all thin sounds and whirring drones - perhaps a bit like this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IkE3lEz3Ro

Lovely scenery from afar. Snow was a joy in my younger years in Montreal, on Baffin Island, and in Northern Ontario. In Toronto, I see little of it. I'm grateful. Older people have a fear of falling, and snowy streets are dangerous. I use a cane with an ice-gripper tip for short winter walks. I'm not sure I could shovel a path anymore.

I love Baroque in any season. I had never heard this piece of Purcell. And the sound of the viols is delightful. Thank you!

Yes, it's sky all the way down...

I worry about my mum on snowy winter days, don't make we worry about you too. :)

Your selection certainly works quite well with that snowscape.

To speak (perhaps too) broadly, I think classical music works best with wilderness, while rock and its derivatives work best with an urban rush hour.

Welcome.
I entirely agree...
