More Music

About another beautiful song, this one is by Debussy, and I actually like it better in English than French because the lyrics are so great. If you're a music downloader, find it, download Beau Soir.

Beau Soir (Beautiful Evening)
Claude Debussy, arranged by Linda Steen Spevacek
When, ’neath the setting sun,
flows a river in evening,
and the warm summer wind blows out across the field
Then from all things a thought arises to be happy,
and it counsels the troubled heart.
And it tells us we should enjoy the gift of living
while we’re youngand the sun is setting in full bloom.
For we shall go away,
like water that is flowing.
It to the sea,
we to the tomb.

If you're interested in more on Debussy., particularly this song- it's really characteristic of this time period, very much in line with Americans like Maxfeild Parish. It was a really nice time in art.
