A bit of an instrument-swapping jam going on here - don't know if this ever made it onto an album, but I like it...

Yes,The Lark Ascending. Whenever I listen to it I'm taken back almost 60 years. Sitting on the pan at Waddington in the summer, waiting for the Vulcan to return, watching and listening to a skylark. It's a long time since I last heard one.

On my way to and from the supermarket, I was listening to Pink Floyd's Echoes, followed by Frijid Pink's House of the Rising Sun. Now, at home, I am listening to Led Zeppelin's Kashmir. A hypnotic sound that takes me, as someone who spent a great deal of my working life in the Middle East, to far off places!

Beautiful music, beautiful flying, and a beautiful country.

The haunting theme tune composed by Catrin Finch and Seckou Keita for the BBC series The Ratline. From minute 18, can’t find it is isolation.

I heard yesterday, as background music, a piece that I really love; Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. Took me back to my abortive piano lessons as a kid, when I learned that piece and his No 1 concerto. I was better at the latter than the first but really enjoyed them both!

Very nice Gemma - but may I recommend the original? The first 5 minutes or so of this, from 30 seconds in:

A wonderful performance by the J.S. Bach Foundation

Video can't be played except on youtube directly, unfortunately - and the redirect strips out the start time of 30 seconds.

A couple of soothing ones from left field: Wasis Diop - African Dream and The Manhattan Brothers - Lakushon' llanga.
Also the incomparable Sandy Denny - It'll Take a Long Long Time and Who Knows Where The Time Goes. Just relax and listen.

How about this Cavatina? Balm for the soul or salt in it’s wounds depending how you feel at the time

And before Little Richard and Chuck Berry and Ike Turner and Carl Perkins and Elvis Somebody-or-other there was the lady who invented rock'n'roll . . .
