Sounds of winter: day 14

Blow thou winter wind is John Rutter’s setting of the Shakespeare poem sung by Closer with photography by Lukas Fluri. A glorious combination! I’m also reminded of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FNVstuJWus When icicles hang by the wall. Also Shakespeare, this time in a setting by George Wagner and sung by him. I’m not so keen on the music but it’s beautifully sung and the changing winter scenery is lovely. Another gorgeous version of Blow thou winter wind is Cleo Laine’s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48r-c9_7JNs I prefer it for listening but the Closer version has the lovely film to accompany it!

The picture was taken in our local park. The waterfowl don’t seem to mind the way their world has solidified. Again – a couple of years ago.
