For meditation, contemplation, or for a funeral
Over on the Good Funeral Guide, Charles often posts really interesting and powerful songs, mostly for possible use in a funeral, but also some of them are simply life/death songs.
But sometimes, you don't need any words.
This track could be used for meditation, for reflecting on . . . whatever comes to mind, or for a funeral. It was just chosen as one of her musical private passions by Tama Rojo, one of the finest ballerinas of her generation on BBC Radio 3.
But watch out, it is powerful sad!
O God, she's just chosen DuPres playing the Elgar cello concerto. Overwhelming. Can't see straight...
I think I'd better go and play something by Bonzo Dog for a bit of silly cheer-up.
