Easter Lent

"There is so much to chose from, Composers throughout the ages have enjoyed painting the emotions of the season. Other than the opening two, which just could not be left out, I have steered clear of obvious choices so have chosen tracks that you may not know so well.

And of course there are a few numbers at the end only slightly off-topic, but I hope you enjoy them. The final number I can’t really justify, however it is uplifting and follows the pattern of Lent/ Easter- in that there is a long soulful introduction followed by a wild upbeat section. The young violinist is aged 11 in the recording."
