This week’s song is dedicated to Diana and Doug, who love the movie Somewhere in Time as much as we do! The 1980 release stars Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour and takes place at the beautiful Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. D and D went on a dream vacation a few years back to the Grand Hotel in early 1900s costumes that Diana sewed! What a memory!!!!
This movie is one of our family’s favorites and the phrase….”Don’t look at the penny!”
We have been watching a lot of Netflix and PBS the last few months, strange activity for summer evenings but this year everything is strange…
We just finished streaming AWAY on Netflix and it is excellent! Clair de Lune (French for “light of the moon”) by Debussy is a poignant recurring musical theme in the show. And we love this piece so here is my abbreviated arrangement of “light of the moon”.
PS. This was one of Rose Bell’s, (beloved LHS English teacher) favorite songs to read by. She requested it when I used to play for worship at St. Patrick’s years ago.
Johannes Brahms published this familiar lullaby in 1868. It was dedicated to his friend Bertha on the birth of her second son. (Johannes had been in love with Bertha in his youth. Sounds like a Hallmark movie storyline to me!)
My arrangement is dedicated to all students, teachers, staff and parents that need to go to bed early Monday evening for their first day of school since March!!!! Positive thoughts to all. And sweet dreams….
