douglas dare was nice enough to send me the link to his brand new video, a live recording of 'london's rose' >>> how happy i am that he did. this is just the music which makes me both eager and excited to share...
such beauty in the voice, the song, and (maybe even most powerfully) the emotion behind the words. a soul-piercing, breath-taking, giving performance. and the setting is perfect. simple and haunting.
there seems to be this fluctuating dance between the piano and the voice. at times a quiet, harmonious sway... only to build to an emotional, push and pull struggle. a battle of wills. both equally beautiful.
