    Kate Bush also put Molly Bloom’s soliloquy to music (she’s so great!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3z1neIlOh8.

    Мне очень помогали ваши записи в трудное для меня время, это была настоящая поддержка. Пишите дальше, помогает.

    The “Musical Assumptions” blog by Elaine Fine may be of interest to classical music devotees. And it’s fun!
