Clarke: Songs, Chamber Works ~ Wright
From [...]
The songs on this disk represent a wide range of Clarke's output, from the earliest mature songs ("Tears," "The Cloths of Heaven," ca. 1912) to her last completed work ("God Made a Tree," 1954, according to the catalogue by her estate manager, Christopher Johnson), and music both published (some from the 1994 collection reprinted by Boosey & Hawkes) and still unpublished ("Tears," "Tiger, Tiger" and "The Donkey"). 53 songs by Clarke survive (mostly for solo voice and piano, and also several other combinations including the songs arranged for voice and violin).

The Cure for All Diseases: With Many Case Historie&hellip by Hulda Regehr Clark

Hulda Clark is perhaps one of the most maligned authors about modern alternative medicine. This books is well written, provides clear and, for the most part, direct information about the root causes of illness and environmental health concerns. Most people may have trouble handling the instructions as they are VERY different lifestyle changes in some instances, but I believe that my health has been improved by implementing a few of the less challenging changes. (the parasite and liver cleanses, drinking water, re-sterilization of milk products, and awareness of pets)
More than worth it to get the book and at least consider a few changes.. you'll body will thank you for it!
Wayfaring Stranger ~ Andreas/Orpheus Chamber Scholl
Wayfaring Stranger ~ Andreas/Orpheus Chamber Scholl
First, I have not always been the greatest admirer of Scholl. As a classical singer (a countertenor myself) with a VERY American sound, I had trouble swallowing the purity and glassiness that I sometimes hear in his tone. I was a MAJOR David Daniels and Bejun Mehta fan, and wasn't enamoured of the gentler side of the CT sound. HOWEVER, I have since given Scholl a second listen (and third and fourth) and decided that his artistry and control of the instrument are superb even if I would choose other timbres for my own vocal style. When I listen to Scholl, it is like an alto Flute, whereas Daniels or myself are more like some doublereed instrument.
