three pieces

My life is full of music.

Just in the last couple of days, I’ve grown fond of three performances—each in a different style. I want to share them with you.

Complete in Thee is a song I have on a CD, but here is a singer who sings it as a one-man quintet. Listen to the words, and you may find them to be precious.

Weightless is a song that you can download for free. “Forgiveness is weightless” and “well hidden bundle on my back”(allusion to Pilgrim’s Progress?) are the phrases that stick out the most to me.

Mahler’s 1st Symphony (the “Titan”) is much on my mind as the Signature Symphony is performing it on Saturday. Here is the fourth movement conducted by Gustavo Dudamel.
