The bl**dy Lark

Yes it’s that time of year again, when Classic FM organise the Hall of Fame election, where listeners vote for their favourite pieces of music. Once again, Vaughan-Williams won with the Lark Ascending. Now this piece of music is a little like Marmite, I’ve decided. You either love it or hate it. Some of us were indifferent once, but having had it played over and over again have become heartily sick of it. I was pleased to find that I am not the only one to feel disappointed that it won again and there is even a Facebook group called ‘We hate lark ascending’. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=115291851819485&ref=mf

I am also not the only one to blog on this topic, as you can see by reading this from the Guardian’s Stephen Moss. http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/musicblog/2008/mar/25/letsgivethebirdtothelark

I have been away to the countryside since my last blog, so here are some cheery Spring pictures.
