Gustav Mahler's 8th symphony (known as Symphony of a Thousand) is one of the greatest choral symphonies.

If it's too long to watch, watch it from 1 hour 17 minutes and 45 seconds for the final section. Starts quietly (the instrument with keyboard which sounds like little bells is called a celeste), and it builds up and up and up.

I’ll check it out later tonight

Yogi, yes I did- you are proxy stretched, de-stressed and feeling positively  

I think making the effort on the yoga mat has hugely improved my post walk recovery. I’ve found a yoga session you tube that’s suitable for runners & walkers, so I’m definitely going to give that a try. You will enjoy proxy doing that session too  

I’m loving my proxy exercises 

I hope they are doing you good πŸ˜‰

fantastic EL we are doing Haydn's Gloria( + other stuff ) with choir for summer concert instead of Vivaldi's - I like it

Good morning everyone

 

Same as Squiggle, the weather is calmer than the last couple of days. Although it was windier for longer yesterday there didn't seem to be a powerful a gust as on Monday.

 

Yogi, I'm glad your exrecises are working

 

Ros, I watched a clip of Haydn's Gloria and I can see why you like it

 

I hope everyone has a good day

Moonie, I'm glad that your swan and cygnet are looking lovely

 

I was talking with someone a few minutes ago about sports we watch. Amongst other ones he mentioned darts and snooker. He prefers darts, I prefer snooker. I said that there;s a lot of thinking about the next move(s) at the top level and that snooker is the sport equivalent of chess and darts of chequers

The donation was given by the Wolfson Foundation. In the past that has given money for the establishment of Wolfson College, Oxford and Wolfson College, Cambridge. Teams from those two have been in University Challenge over the years. Possibly the best known contestant in recent years is Eric Monkman who was captain of the Cambridge team who got to the final i 2017. Wolfson College, Oxford got through to the next round on Monday's programme.
