Mellifluous Melody

Share a beautiful melody.

Dido’s Lament from Purcell’s opera Dido and Aeneas is one of my favourite melodies.  Also, I love the main themes to the films Il Postino and Cinema Paradiso. There’s a brilliant soundtrack album for Il Postino with Neruda’s poems and Luis Bacalov’s music.

Feel free to add your favourite melodies to this collaborative playlist.

    Hello Mike,

    Two of my favourite melodies are by Debussy: Girl with the Flaxen Hair and Claire de Lune – or Clear the Room as it is known in jazz circles. I especially like Laurando Almedias (sic) bossa nova version which can be found on youtube.

    The famous second movement of the Rodgrigo concerto is also a perennial favourite.
