a musical interlude to clear the air

After yesterday’s revolting find in the land of Christian bigots, I’m left with a bad taste in my mouth. What better way to refresh the senses than the Most Perfect Piece of Music Ever Written?  Turn it up loud for a wall of sound of the most divinely woven epic that a double string orchestra has ever played. I give you Vaughan Williams, Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.

If you found that too wonderful for words, you may also enjoy Tippett’s Fantasia Concertante on a Theme of Corelli.
