Tuneful Tuesday Week 89: Candle on the Water

Tuneful Tuesday Week 89: Candle on the Water

This is my favorite lesser-known Disney songs. This song truly spoke to me when I was a child and helped me to make it through the tumultuous tides of life.

Tuneful Tuesday Week 87: “Das Veilchen” by Mozart

Tuneful Tuesday Week 87: “Das Veilchen” by Mozart

A violet in the meadow stood,

with humble brow, demure and good,

it was the sweetest violet.

There came along a shepherdess

with youthful step and happiness,

who sang, who sang

along the way this song.

Oh! thought the violet, how I pine

for nature’s beauty to be mine,

if only for a moment.

for then my love might notice me

and on her bosom fasten me,

I wish, I wish

if but a moment long.

But, cruel fate! The maiden came,

without a glance or care for him,

she trampled down the violet.

He sank and died, but happily:

and so I die then let me die

for her, for her,

beneath her darling feet

Poor little violet.

It was the sweetest violet.

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and this is one of my favorite Irish tunes. The mixture of melancholy and nostalgia really speaks to my heart.

Tuneful Tuesday Week 83: Arms

Tuneful Tuesday Week 83: Arms

Between the holidays and a long and nasty bout of laryngitis, my Tuneful Tuesdays are finally back! Here is my version of Christina Perri’s “Arms”. I’ve been enjoying playing with my mixed voice and “pop” style lately as it’s a big change from my usual classical style.

Tuneful Tuesday Week 82: “When She Loved Me”

This song from Toy Story 2 always pulls at my heart strings…. the story of a loved toy doll whose owner grows older and loses interest in her but then one day the owner finds the toy and hugs it once again. The love, the nostalgia, and the beautiful story of loyalty just gives me all the feels.

Tuneful Tuesday Week 80: O Holy Night

Merry Christmas everyone!

My gift to each of you is my most requested Christmas song. One year I didn’t program this on my annual Christmas concert and there was a bit of an uproar. Now I make sure to end each concert with O Holy Night.

May this holiday bring you peace, happiness, and health.

All my love to you!
