Staunton Harold Revisited 1/7

I make no apology in posting another series from Staunton Harold, an estate about 15 minutes drive from us. It was a fine but very cold 24th. February morning and we had the place almost to ourselves. A river runs through the estate and opens out into the Serpentine Lake before emptying into the Staunton Harold Reservoir a short distance further on.

 

I was playing some tracks from older CD's.the other day and came across this, a favourite I'd forgotten about, from the instrumental group called Sky. Not quite as Bach meant it to be played, the first 1m.- 10s. are more or less as writ and then it takes off, enjoy if you like instrumentals.

Très joli ce mélange de bleu et de vert.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely place to visit only a short distance from us.

You have some gorgeous places not far from where you live, Brian
Brian Walbey: We are very lucky, it would be difficult to run out of places to go within say an hour from home unlike when we lived in Cambridgeshire and there wasn't that many places to go apart from Cambridge itself.
What a lovely place, Brian!
The music is creative, isn't it!
Brian Walbey: We were very lucky to have the place almost to ourselves and after a gentle stroll, we don't do strenuous ones anymore like you and Frank, we retired to the excellent tearoom and had a very enjoyable lunch, all in all a very enjoyable outing.

It was a lovely February day
Brian Walbey: Indeed it was, we've not had many days like that this year, especially today, what a washout!
A river runs through it! You can never go wrong with images like this, Brian, no matter how many times, imho.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, I was so lucky with the light that day.

You made my day, Brian. Not only with your picture but also with your music, MY kind of music. I had to look for our Dutch band "Ekseption".... 1969.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlsFqpWgUxA
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. I have had a quick look at Ekseption, very much my style, they have several videos on YT so I will sit back and enjoy more in due course.

I’m not sure what Bach would have made of it Brian. I had not heard of Sky.
Brian Walbey: Sky were very popular back in the 80's and early 90's, I very much enjoy instrumental music of this type, as well as most classical, takes me back to when I was fit enough to jive etc.!

Absolutely no apology necessary, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, I hope you enjoy the rest of the series.
You picked the perfect day and vista.
Brian Walbey: We've not had many days like that this year have we, especially today, what a washout!
You picked the perfect day and vista.
Great music you have rediscovered
Brian Walbey: Very much my type of music at one time Martin, I have broadened out to enjoying a variety of music types, ecept Punk and Rap of course, in the eyars since the 80's.

A lovely peaceful scene.

I think I had that music on vinyl in the dim and distant past!
Brian Walbey: It was really nice place to go that morning. The whole CD is to my liking.
A rare nice day this year.

I had forgotten all about Sky. They had a number of successful albums but this was their only singles success
Brian Walbey: Very rare indeed Bill. The whole CD is to my liking.
Oh to have green grass like that in February! What a beautiful scene, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely place to visit.
A beautiful, restful image

I liked the music of Sky very much - and still do. We certainly had some nice weather in February; I was even walking round without a jacket two days before the Beat from the East along.
Brian Walbey: It is a great CD, very much to my liking. It is a bit of everything here this week!
oh... i like this very much Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.
