Sunday Song – Samuel Barber

This is one of those pieces of music that never fails to make me stop and just let it wash over me.

I first became properly aware of it, although I know I’d heard it before, when I was performing in a stage adaptation of Charles Dickens A Tale Of Two Cities (as against Joe Bloggs’ version, clearly).

Samuel Barber’s Adagio For Strings was used as a constant refrain throughout the performance and served to lend it a real gravitas and sorrow.

Turn up the volume and revel in this wonderful piece of music!
