Sound Travels: Cinema Serenade
I haven't done a Sound Travels post in such a long time, but Dolce Bellezza inspired me to pick up my meme, dust it off, and begin again. Bellezza does a weekly meme on Wednesdays called What Are You Listening To Wednesday.
I'm not a reader who generally listens to music while she reads. I try to set aside time to just listen. But occasionally I find some music that, if I turn it down low, works well for me while I read. Recently I found that I could listen to Cinema Serenade 2: The Golden Age while reading. It's also fantastic to just sit and listen to. It is the Boston Pops Orchestra, conducted by John Williams and features Itzhak Perlman. Some of the delights include:
Theme from Laura (1944) - this one always makes me want to read Rebecca by DuMaurier!
Theme from Now, Voyager (1942)
Tara's Theme from Gone with the Wind (1939)
You can take a brief listen here.
