Nice to have you back Fred and I do hope you don't follow in the footsteps of dear Isaac Nathan, who reportedly didn't care what he said or how he said it and as a result upset a lot of folks, totally unlike you of course (scouse git).
regards

Thanks HHH, the trip was very enjoyable, very successful and very hot (Philippines always is at this time of year).

I haven't upset anyone for quite a while now. I think I'm losing my touch...

The perfect English combo - Keats's words and Stanford's music. Er, but the title's in French!
The ballad itself consists of 12 quatrains of ABCB rhyme in iambic tetrameter form, except
for every last line, which is in iambic trimeter form. The music is in F minor.

Hi JS, you've probably guessed that Keats is my favourite poet,
so I've started to commit some of his sonnets to memory, which
is quite a difficult task. When I have fears that I may cease to be....

Just in case anyone is interested, I've now scanned the whole album
from which the above song was extracted. It's on IMSLP under the
title 'Album of 12 English Songs', on the Stanford page, of course.
