In view of the fact that I've been living on a boat for the last week, I thought a little maritime music was in order. Initially I thought of Calm Sea and a Prosperous Voyage by Mendelssohn. But it's a little dreary. Then I thought of Variation number VIII of the Enigma Variations by Elgar which is labelled *** as it was for a mysteroius lady who was on a a voyage at the time. Elgar used the Calm Sea overture as a link to this. Then I thought of this, The Fair Melusine, also by Mendelssohn. I like the bubbling he has in the music.
