(NOTE: Weeks ago, I received a notice that there would be a "maintenance day" at Pod-O- Matic on Friday May 11 - so far, there is service but who knows... I will post the montage effective Sunday May 13, in time for Mother's Day. The above Internet Archive embedded player lets you enjoy the music anytime!)

Le texte français sera publié séparément dans le cadre d'un billet de faveur, prevu pour dimanche le 13 mai.

Sunday is Mother's Day, and I thought I would repeat my podcast from May 6th last year (Podcast #5 in our series). The theme of the montage was flowers and a pair of opera selections about Mothers.

The "feature work" for that montage was Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain for piano and orchestra, in a CBC Recoirds performance by canadian pianist Angela Cheng and the Calgary Philharmonic under its then-Music DIrector, Hans Graf.

To complete this encore podcast, here are a few bonus tracks from my YouTube channel. Two of the tracks are repeats from the mointage, with a twist: Deanna Durban sings 'Tis the Last Rose of Summer and Connie Francis sings her version of Puccini's Senza Mamma.

Also on the bonus playlist, a concert performance of Cesare Andrea Bixio's Mamma by Luciano Pavarotti and Clara Haskill plays Mozart's twelve variations on the French nursery rhyme "Ah ! vous dirai-je, maman" known in the English-speaking world as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star".

I Thiunk You WIll Love this Music too, again!
