It's April and Spring is coming soon ( Yes it is !! )
Now that we have an Argentinian Pope, I thought it would be nice to find some tango music. This one is a bit scratchy, but it fits nicely.
This tango SPRING SONG (Chanson de printemps in French is a tango version of the classical Frühlingslied composed by the German author Felix Mendelssohn in 1842.
Tito Fuggi was a French conductor who began his successful career playing accordion in the tango Orchestra from Argentina conducted by the famous Francisco Canaro during a world tour, and later became conductor of his own group.
Images are of art relating to Spring across many different centuries and St Francis features too.
Blessings and hope you all enjoy your weekend !!
