    1. A very nice choice of music and videos here! Thank you. No wonder K. D. Dowdall loves your contribution!

      I would like to reciprocate in kind and resonate with the spirit of “Haunting Ethereal Music with Fairies, Forests and Moons…” by inviting you to listen to a very substantial piece of music called “Transfigured Night” in a special post at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2013/01/06/soundeagle-in-john-clinocks-art-rat-cafe/

      At the post, you can also look for a poem called “Transfigured Night” by Richard Dehmel. It is originally called “Verklärte Nacht” as it is originally written in German. I have included both the English and German versions. There, you can appreciate how the moon is quite central even though it is directly mentioned only three times.

      So rich and evocative is the poem that it had been set to music by Arnold Schoenberg in 1899. Listen to the sumptuous, haunting and romantic music “Transfigured Night” and imagine . . . . .

      Since you like paintings, you will find plenty in the post to enjoy too!

        1. Yes…that is strange indeed. But, try it yourself, go to YouTube. However, if you live in another country than America, you will be able to view it. Let me know. Karen 🙂

      1. Thanks for sharing all this SoundEagle. I was able to listen to this. Its a lovely classical melancholy piece. There appeared to be 2 different videos and the second one worked. I think the viewing problems on some youtube videos are not to do with copywright always but also to do with new laws we don’t even know about stopping people from some countries viewing content in other countries. I have noticed it a lot recently. It’s hard to keep up with how the internet is changing! But there seems less freedom of sharing information now. Thank-you for your feedback and for sharing your post.

        1. Thank you for your reply. Yes, these viewing problems can certainly be rather vexing, as you mentioned.

          By the way, I am not sure how to address you. Would you like to be called “supernaturalwriting” or something else?

          It would be very nice if you could also leave your comments or feedback in the respective comment sections of my posts.

          May you have a lovely weekend celebrating the beginning of autumn and March!

    1. Both beautiful. I love Tubular Bells. In the 1990’s I was really into the music of Mike Oldfield. Bought a lot of his CDs and read his Autobiography. I can play Tubular Bells and Hergest Ridge on the piano. Tubular Bells is such an amazing tune. There are a few versions of Carol of the Bells about. I’ve heard one really haunting version before though can’t find it. It wasn’t the one you sent though.

      1. I don’t know Mike Oldfield’s music (except I know that was the video I sent you). I am a fan of George Winston’s though, who played the Carol of the Bells video. I’ll check out Hergest Ridge. I’m jealous that you can play the piano!
