For me it's the opening of RVW's 5th Symphony...

That is, once again, extremely kind! And yes, I do sometimes (or did) "conduct" the music I am listening to in my sitting room, I have occasionally danced and I am certainly moved to tears by some music. I recall Holst's reaction to hearing RVW's Tallis Fantasia in Gloucester Cathedral, gripping his seat lest he was levitated upwards by the spiritual power of the music. There have been many times in the concert hall I have held onto my seat to prevent losing control of my arms-at the grandeur of a Bruckner brass chorale for example. It is the way I respond to music and I make no apology for such a physical, visceral reaction.
 

Colin. I just found a couple of quotes from Maurice Ravel that entirely back up your (and my!) position: "Music, I feel, must be emotional first and intellectual second." And "We should always remember that sensitiveness and emotion constitute the real content of a work of art".

So there!

I had to ask about this too and Albion very kindly told me the method. First, you find the photo you want to insert somewhere on the web; right click on it and select "copy image address". Then, come back to this "post reply" box, click on the "Insert Image" button above to produce the square backet img thingy. Position your cursor between the two sets of square brackets, right click and "paste" the image address that you have copied into it.  You can then check by clicking on the "Preview" button below whether it's worked.

Good luck!

I like Werther's Originals too and I have recently developed a taste for the chocolate-flavoured ones (not that they'll supplant the original 'originals', if you see what I mean). Grin

I much preferred the green version. After pink, brown is probably my least favourite colour

Okey-dokey - a change is as good as a rest! Perhaps members may feel more inclined to post...
