The Rabbit of Seville

As I drove over Ringinglow this morning on the way to the office, the sun was shining, there was enough snow on the moors to provide some contrast with the dark shades of the dormant heather and dead bracken and Rossini's Overture to the Barber of Seville was playing on Classic FM.

We might, hyperbolically speaking, still be in the grip of winter but it's days like this that uplift the spirit and make you think that spring may be just around the corner or over the top of the next rise.

There is of course only one arrangment of the Barber of Seville overture worth spending time on*, so if you happen to have 7 minutes and 31 seconds to waste, here it is.

*Others may disagree but hey, what do they know?
