Earworm: Poulenc Gloria

Various parts of this piece are floating around in my head. This morning, I was regaling my wife and child with

Qui tollis pecata mundi

DO I LIKE: Yes, very much. It's really Grown on me.
WHY: Obviously, since we've been singing it all week with COC. We had our first performance last night.

Happy nine-month-birthday, Harrison!

Earworm: Edmund Fitzgerald

Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald on Lake Superior (Gitchi Gumi.) Consequently the Gordon Lightfoot song was discussed yesterday on NPR. Residues of it were in my consuciousness this morning. It seems odd that as I write this I am hard pressed to recall the words or melody.

DO I LIKE? Don't really know it. Not even sure about the title. Seems a little beany for my tastes, though.

It seems most mornings I have a song stuck in my head right as I wake. I thought that if I blogged it, a useful pattern may emerge. Or not. More to come...

Earworm: Beethoven's Ninth

This morning, I kept thinking

Seid entschlungen Millionen diesen Küß der ganzen Welt.

DO I LIKE? So-so. It's grown on me. It's stirring, but not my favorite of his symphonies.

WHY? No clue. Maybe b/c of COC reh last nite, but we reh nothing like that.
