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
