And a hey nonny ho!

The other morning I left a message on a friend’s cell, hopped in my car and began to sing along, loudly, to an album of English Art Songs by Gerald Finzi. (Chances are you are not familiar with English Art Songs, and that speaks well of you. Congratulations. To explain, they are the gayest things ever created by man. I like them a lot.) I was about halfway through my second full-throated rendering of an English Art Song when I heard from my cell phone, “The message is full. Press 1 to deliver…” and realized I had just given my friend a once-in-a-lifetime gift. To demonstrate just how precious this gift is, here are the songs:

The 2nd one is a setting of Shakespeare’s “It Was a Lover and His Lass.”

Hey, at least I didn’t pull a George Brett. (If you don’t know what it is I refer to, count yourself lucky, and please don’t search it.)
