The Sun, the Earth and spring

The Sun, the Earth and spring with the motet Jubilate Deo omnis terra by Palestrina, Haydn's 'Sunrise' quartet and the burgeoning joy of 'Fruhling' - Spring - by Richard Strauss.

The Sun, the Earth and spring are depicted in this evening's In Tune Mixtape, with the motet Jubilate Deo omnis terra by Palestrina, Haydn's 'Sunrise' quartet and the burgeoning joy of 'Fruhling' - Spring - by Richard Strauss. To open, a playful Ciacona by Biber, and the quiet warmth of Consolation No 3 by Liszt. And there's the foot-stomping of Bartok's Transylvanian dances, with the open skylight of Colleen's Sun against my eyes.
