Helpful notes

In recent weeks, when the real world has shown so much ugliness, I felt drawn towards creating a playlist where the selections would have little in common, other than their sheer beauty. Yet again, music is the balm, the antidote. I hope you enjoy these choices.

Nick Drake: 'Cello Song' [Peel Session version... with a flute instead!]

Brian Eno: 'The Big Ship'

Peter Gabriel & Sinead O'Connor: 'Blood Of Eden'

Susan Graham, Roger Vignoles: Hahn, 'A Chloris'

Joni Mitchell: 'Carey'

Nigel North: Dowland, 'Mrs Winter's Jump'

Penguin Café Orchestra: 'Music For A Found Harmonium'

Simon & Garfunkel: 'For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her'

Strawberry Switchblade: 'Deep Water'
