You Wish We Waltz

My friend John has a Victorian-style punchcard music box. We put the punched strip for a well-known Christmas carol in upside down, and this is what we got.

Where Corals Lie

Sir Edward Elgar, 1899, from a cycle of 5 songs called Sea Pictures. This one is about the singer constantly hearing the call of the sea. Live recording from a recital I did in May with pianist Guy Newbury.

Der Tod und das Mädchen

One of Franz Schubert's finest songs. Recorded, inexpertly, live in a recital I did in Oxford about a year ago with my excellent accompanist Guy.
