The combination of such soul stirring music and being surrounded by the beauty of nature truly moved me. So much so, I can actually close my eyes right now, listen to the music and be right there, in that uplifted emotional state. I can actually feel my soul lift and my heart soar.
Isn't it amazing how music can have such a profound effect?
It's as though our life constantly has a soundtrack playing in the background!
For every stage of life, for every precious moment, there's music playing!
Have a little think about it, recall right now a significant event in your life... I'll bet there's a piece of music that accompanies it, right?
I recently watched the amazingly inspirational Gareth Malone, sharing the joy of music in the television series "The choir- sing while you work". What a fantastic idea! Without exception, the workplaces were transformed by the sharing of music, not only for those actually singing, but alsofor those sharing in their absoulte uplifting happiness. Employees and directors alike, side by side, simply ( well not that simply, was pretty advanced harmonies from what I could tell!) sharing a love of music. And it truly stirred their souls and the souls of everyone that heard them. For those of you reading that didn't see the series, I've included a snippet below. "Note" how much fun they're all having ! ( excise the pun there ;))
I actually cry at X factor! ( there I said it out loud)
Watch this and tell me it doesnt move you, just a little ...... the beautiful Ella Henderson ( and a Lincolnshire Gal too!)
And consider this... feel free to share here on the comments if you feel so drawn.... What is the theme tune to your life right now?
Mine would be: Vaughan Williams - The Lark ascending , a truly uplifting combination of beautiful notes :)
Make every moment count!
