A couple of our favourites

Natasha Atlas “Adam’s Lullabye”
Nightwish “Sleeping Sun”

Listening to Radio 3 just now reminded me of a wonderfully haunting song, Flanders and Swann’s Slow Train.

I heard it too, an extraordinary piece of work. Deeply melancholic and unlike anything else that they recorded.

I always think of it as being in the same vein as the Edward Thomas poem about the deserted station at Adelstrop.

Huge F&S fan here. I love their take on Mozart’s 4th horn concerto, it’s really very clever. And Flanders’ rhymes in Misalliance are so witty: “… Bindweed” with “…mind; we’d” and “… entwined; we’d” for example. And when things get a bit excessive in HiFi Corner, I’m reminded of their Song of Reproduction. Just the sort of thing I need when the world gets too depressing.

Apologies for thread diversion.
