Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.

I cannot conceive why anyone would deliberately sail/motor into a gale force wind. To be perfectly clear, my admiration is great. Some women are braver than others I guess. I know I’m rambling but someone somewhere will understand what I’m talking about. This would probably be my last thought faced with rough weather. Enjoy.

Stay safe, everyone. Leave the boating until finer weather.

Kind Regards.

  1. I love this piece of music! It reminds me of years ago when I did some work in the theater and they played it as an introduction to a play before the curtain went up. Fantastic! Thanks for sharing, Tracy.

  2. Tracy I’m very fond of the music of Rimsky-Korsakov and enjoyed the musical memories of this selection.
    I have a YouTube selection played by the Saint John String Quartet “Northwest Passage.” This music is written by Stan Rogers who sings the words of this selection on YouTube. With Global Warming the Northwest Passage can be navigated for a few weeks a year. The British Polar Expedition lead by Franklin was recently discovered sunk in the Arctic where it had rested on the bottom for around 150 years. The snow geese are in from the Arctic and are wintering in the Fraser Valley! So beautiful and noisy.

      1. You are correct Tracy! This area has an untapped fish resource which will be exploited as Global Warming progresses. Lots of images for the wintering Snow Geese on YouTube.

      2. I really enjoyed the instrumental version of Northwest Passage and Stan Rogers singing his song. I read that it was Canada’s unofficial national anthem. Thank you for the suggestion, Sid. I was thinking of another shipwreck tragedy song sung by another Canadian singer for this week’s Friday song day, but I think I will save that for another day.


  3. Very timely, as this week we watched on SBS, a movie called ‘Orchestra Class’ a French movie about kids from the banlieu learning to play this music. I recommend it.

  4. Just beautiful music, Tracy! I don’t have the stomach for sailing, but I enjoyed rowing as a kid and on calm waters. 😊 But I do admire people who are adventurous enough to try the high seas with just a piece of wood under their bottoms and a sail above their heads.
