That title reminds me of the operetta, The Bohemian Girl.  First performed way back in the late 1800's, and then off an on until it was made into a movie in the 1930's.  I saw a performance by a musical theater group about 30 years ago, and really enjoyed it.  Famous for the aria, I Drempt I Dwelt in Marble Halls.  Here it is, sung by Jessye Norman.

Marilyne, I have not heard that song in years and I am sure I have sung it (to myself) many times.  I had no idea where it came from.  It was good to hear Jessye Norman too.  She used to sing on one of the musical radio programs that used to be on and I always enjoyed her singing.  Thanks for posting it.

Glad you liked it Mary Ann. I just listened to it once again, to hear Jessye Norman's gorgeous voice singing that beautiful song.  I also noticed that I misspelled "Dreamt" by removing the a and adding a p, and ending up with Drempt! ::)

Marilyn, I never noticed but I knew what song she would sing and I knew the melody before she got started.  She does/did have a wonderful voice.

I had heard it by Enya before but this version's voice  is crystal clear, so I enjoyed it much.  Thanks!

I have a CD of Carmen with Jessye Norman singing the title role; her wonderful rich voice is perfect for the part.  This youtube clip must be a rehearsal, since it's the same people and orchestra.  The singer who appears for a moment as Don Jose is Niel Schicoff, an underappreciated singer I like a lot.  He did an amazing job in Tales of Hofmann.

Thank you Pat!  I never tire of listening to that particular tune... and that voice is beautifully well suited for it.

Some Fall themed music:

This one is kind of dark and dramatic: Arnold Bax - November Woods
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWooGjw28Wg


Fanny Mendelssohn wrote Das Jahr which represents each month of a year.

September: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_zZw0p5Tv8
October: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMn5-QmwhWQ
November: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8YjWpdZQCw

Fanny is the elder sister of Felix Mendelssohn. She wrote around 466 compositions.

This is a sad commentary on how women were suppressed in the arts as with other professions. https://medium.com/@tdrks/fanny-mendelssohn-in-the-shadow-of-felix-4c3782ba8576
