30 Day Music Meme: Day 30

It's hot and humid and I can't sleep. Tomorrow This afternoon, The Netherlands will meet Brazil in the quarter finals of the World Cup, and I fully expect them to lose; which is a shame as I've managed to accumulate quite a nice little collection of Oranje icons over the last few weeks that now, sadly, will have to go unused.

Day 30: A song you haven't listened to in a while

Emma Kirkby & Evelyn Tubb sing Chiome d'Oro, by Monteverdi

There are no more rest of the days!

Earlier in the meme, when asked to list a song that reminded me of my best friend, I came up with Monty Python's Sit On My Face, which Peronne would usually begin to sing after she'd had a glass or two. This song, though, and in fact the entire cd from which it's plucked (Emma Kirkby & Evelyn Tubb sing Monteverdi Duets & Solos with The Consort of Musick - Director: Anthony Rooley, Innovative Music Productions Ltd., 1987), will forever remind me of my other dear departed friend Joost, who even though he was a lifelong Bob Dylan-fan, whenever he came round to mine would frequently choose to put on. Which is probably why I haven't listened to it since well before his death.

Wow, I read that as Ernest Tubb, which is a truly weird thought, if you've ever heard him.

if you've ever heard him.

I hadn't; which seems a bit strange as that's exactly the kind of music my mum has been listening to almost exclusively since the 1950s. Her record collection of over 5,800 albums exists almost entirely of c&w, with artists like Marvin Rainwater, Hank Williams and Hank Snow...but I don't think I've ever heard her mention Ernest Tubb. Must ask her next time I see her!

Thank you - that was a very nice piece to listen to just before leaving for work.

You're very welcome! I agree, this sort of music is particularly suited to early morning starts ;-)
