The One-Hundred and Twenty-First Edition Of The Parish News: I recorded this on the Winter Solstice of 2018 at Creao Studio, Harrogate. It was quite miserable outside but the heating was on and I was welcome there. I open this week’s show with a track that reminds me of Dad – I hope he doesn’t mind.
Andy Moor got in contact with the show to give me a translation of his verse, “Le Songe de Ludwig” – it is amazing to see the English version of a poem I have been championing for the best part of 2018. I am of the opinion that verse is something that should be heard and experienced, rather than read – although, I am grateful for the translation into English – I am glad they chose the spoken word as a medium. I will include the spoken lyrics of “Le songe de Ludwig” in the comments of this post. It made my day when Andy got in touch …
I have also taken the time to redesign the site for The Parish News – it still needs a bit of work doing to it but I am happy with how it looks.
