In Case You're Feeling Too Cheerful

Once more, I was looking for something else, but here is a powerful recording of an orchestra from Indiana University and Ralph Vaughan Williams' "Tallis Fantasia". Perhaps this piece wouldn't strike me as being quite so sad if I hadn't made its acquaintance first in a tragic scene in the movie Master and Commander, but it isn't exactly a sprightly tune, however you look at it. Sprightly, it isn't; lovely it is.
