I write about music a lot because it’s an important part of my life. I don’t know what I would do if music was ever gone from my life forever. I guess I could live, but I think I would always be coming up with melodies of my own and listening to songs that I’ve memorized in my head.
I love all kinds of music, and classical music is no exception. I just started to really delve into classical music over the past few days, starting with the Baroque period. I’ve been listing to Bach as well as an old Italian opera. 👌 Good stuff. The opera (L’Orfeo by Claudio Monteverdi) is very medieval feeling and I love Bach, especially his piano works.
In addition to classical music, I’ve been listening to The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring soundtrack as I read the book. I love LOTR, and I have since I was young. Whenever I listen to the track Concerning Hobbits I feel a bit emotional. The music is nostalgia ridden and carries a certain weight to it even though it’s a happy song. A lot of the songs on the soundtrack are like that. They have a certain weight to them that makes them feel old, like they are really from Middle Earth. Like the songs themselves come from the Shire, Rivendell, and Minas Tirith. Like the songs have always existed as long as the tales of Middle Earth have existed. 💕
Yes, I am a bit dramatic, but these thoughts have run through my head before.
