Interlude: Susanna Rigacci and Ennio Morricone

Good evening readers. This blogger apologises for needing to take a few days, possibly a week, away from online life. Please feel free to leave comments in the interim though, as I would welcome your opinions on the recent ‘Beyond the Fringe’ series in particular. However, as I will be absent from my increasingly outdated computer for a while, I will neither be reading nor publishing comments until I return, so do not take it as an affront if your words do not appear over the coming week, for they will do so when I am next able to log on in seven days or so.

Meanwhile, given that a recent comment brought to mind spaghetti westerns, it reminded me of this energetic uplifting piece by Ennio Morricone – The Ecstasy of Gold – here sung by the stunning soprano Susanna Rigacci. Muse's Knights of Cydonia would have made a suitable companion piece, but for some reason I was unable to embed the code of the accompanying video.
