Skype, Facebook, YouTube = Fun Evening

Earlier on today I was chatting with a friend from Munich who seemed to have a lot of fun with the YouTube videos of the Mozart Karaoke that I put on this blog a while back.

By accident I came across an interesting video on facebook today that I wanted to share with you. Remember that I blogged about the Sting concert in Berlin where he was doing the Dowland songs? This one is similar, only that it’s much more interesting than Sting:

The performer, Ola Sandström, is from Sweden. You can listen to more music on his myspace profile. He also has a website at www.olasandstrom.com in case you want to practice your Swedish…

This of course reminded me of The Forge Players whose interpretation of Dowland’s Come Again is my all-time favorite! Unfortunately I couldn’t find this recording on YouTube. Instead I found Come Heavy Sleep, which I like too:

Here is another one by the Forge Players and Freddie Wadling: Unquiet Thoughts by Dowland.

And then there is this one:

  1. Not on YouTube, but this is still my favourite Dowland recording – ‘Come Again’ on here is perfect.
