Wished to write about the joys of gardening, about our extraordinary connection with nature, about the rhapsody of the racing ladybugs, the delicate multicolors of my flowers. Wished to sing about Spring – the way of the nightingales. Now that the Vernal Equinox took the Sun across the celestial equator of the “ladybug” planet of ours… How could I express this harmony in words? Aware that I cannot, I took the camera in my hands, had my man pursuing me in the garden. Ah, and added a touch of Renaissance music in my head. As well as on the soundtrack of the Youtube video down under. Enjoy my photo Equinox Essay!
Greensleeves to a Ground
Paul Arden-Taylor (descant recorder), Carol Holt (harpsichord)
Greensleeves is a traditional English folk song, usually played by a single instrument over a ground of the romanesca or passamezzo antico form. Usually regarded as an anonymous piece, there are many records of claims to the authorship of the tune, mainly by English composers. The theory exists that Santiago de Murcia, a Spanish composer, may have created the tune. It has had many sets of lyrics, some of which make sexual references.
