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!

Who doesn`t like a fast piece of JSB from the very tallented Loreto Aramendi .

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.

Here's another 'wow' performance:

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.

Supper's Ready Genesis Digitally re-mastered in 2008.
I recommend a read of all; the sleeve notes lyrics etc.

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 . . .
