5 on Friday - Set 113

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

As I enjoy Day 1 of this 4-day Easter long weekend, my thoughts turn in Good Friday directions.

Happy Easter - and may you rise from whatever holds you in shadow to feel the joy of life inside of you.

1 - Stabat Mater Dolorosa (The Sorrows of Mary) - composed by Antonio Vivaldi, performed by Andreas Scholl

2 - Since By Man Came Death - composed by Geroge Frideric Handel, performed by the English Concert & Choir, directed by Trevor Pinnock

3 - Gabriel Appeared - by Pavel Chesnokov, performed by an unidentified Moscow Men's Choir with soloist Igor Chernogov-Nomerov

4 - Benedictus from The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace - composed by Karl Jenkins, performed by Only Men Aloud and The Cory Band

Music begins at the 2:13 mark. I just love looking at all those Welsh faces, all the same age as my Peredur, the Dark Ages Welsh warrior from my vampire novel SAINT SANGUINUS  

5 - Strati na Angelaki Doumasche (Haiduk Song) or song of the forest freedom fighters - performed by Trio Bulgarka

Great set this week for the Holy Weekend, Julia. I could only listen to four of them as the last video apparently got yanked via YouTube for some sort of infringement violation by the maker - oops! However, out of the four that I listened to, I would have to say that I really enjoyed the last one the best. Such beautiful voices!

Have a very Happy Easter weekend and may the peace of God and the joy of living be with you and yours!
