Oh, the Music!!

Last Friday I had a few things on my "to do list". One of them was to locate the Bora Ring (apparently there WAS one at Beachmere, but I learned that there was one at Sandstone Point.)

One of the other things was to go to the movies and see "The Hundred Foot Journey" at Bribie Island.  I did both.

As I was arriving at the Bora Ring, I was listening to the ABC, and the music being played was  "Procession of the Sardar" - and I stopped in the car while it finished.  I don't know why, but I found it a very emotional piece of music.  So stirring - and as it came at the same time that I had arrived at a place I had been looking for - I was filled with excitement.  I have tried to buy the CD - on this occasion it was played by the Borusan Istanbul Philarmonic Orchestra - without success but have found other orchestra's playing it on Youtube.  Where else?

There are several renditions of this music on YouTube, and I have chosen (in the absence of one played by the Istanbul Orchestra) one which doesn't give details of the orchestra.

I will endeavour to find a CD or perhaps download it from iTunes.  I have never used iTunes, so that will be an experience, but I would prefer the CD.  I have played the music over and over again, and it still is something that excites me so much.  I am sure I have heard the music before, but never has it impressed me as much as it did last Friday.  Or Amazon - I have found it there.

It is a popular piece of music - so I will set out to buy a copy.
