Vaughan Williams symphony #8 [Feb. 10th, 2007|02:56 pm]

This is just to say that I CANNOT get VW's symphony #8 out of my head!  How it lodges in the brain!!

Paul, did VW particularly favor the viola?  Now that I think about it, there is a lot of lovely viola highlighting in VW works.  I imagine that that's somewhat rare, that the viola more often gets overlooked?

And OT - I just made a banner for the community profile. Now we can advertise!  Read the profile information and see if that sounds more suitable than what it was before - more inclusive.  (And all just so Percy Grainger can have a spot...)

Forgot to say, I love the new banner! Sorry if I put a spanner in the works by mentioning the nationality of Mr Grainger! btw - can you let me know how you created the aforementioned banner? I'd love to try one for Cantus Firmus!

Thanks very much! I made it in Serif photo plus, which is like a free similar program to photo shop. It has tools for manipulating images and text, etc.

Nah, it wasn't you who put the spanner in the works. I already knew Grainger was an Australian. One of my Australian friends pointed it out to me when I was announcing the creation of this comm, which quite surprised me! He seems so British! But I think the new description I wrote is safely inclusive. :D
