He’s Back

Here is the final cut of Orlando Di Lasso’s “Bonjour et Puis Quelles Nouvelles,” which as you know, means “Hello and Then What News!”

Eclectic Guitar

This song was written over 400 years ago. That’s almost as old as my laptop.

Tres Mas Otra Vez

This isn’t done yet, but I am (at least for today). It is another song by Orlando Di Lasso, titled “Bonjour et puis quelles nouvelles.” That translates to “Hello and then what news!” (I added the exclamation point for effect.)

And here are two more Bach Chorales:

Number 60
Number 61

No Title Needed

I wake each morning when it’s dark
Awakened by a dog’s loud bark
I brew some coffee and drink it down
And after a while I lose my frown

Here are some more songs to help you lose your frown, if you have one.

Number 47
Number 48
Number 52
My Summer Home

More Music

We are half way through the list of 101 Chorales. Here are numbers 42, 45, and 46.

The first two songs begin in the key of G Major. The last song begins in the key of C-Minor. Can you hear the difference? I knew you could!

Number 42
Number 45
Number 46
“THIS MUSIC IS THE CAT’S MEOW!”

Three More Just for You

These three songs bring us up to number forty-one in the countdown of 101 Bach Chorales, for those of you keeping score at home.

Number 39
Number 40
Number 41

And by the way, if you haven’t seen the show “Halo” on Paramount Plus, I highly recommend it. But be prepared to have your mind blown.

Four More For The Road

The Countdown of Bach Chorales continues. You probably have noticed that the final chord is major, instead of minor, in most of these songs. When that happens it is called a “Picardy Third” because the third note on the final chord is raised a half step.
