I named this blog after my grandparent's home - many happy days spent there. Didn't think I would still be blogging after a month but I still hang in - from time to time.

Erik Satie's Nocturnes
Erik Satie composed his six Nocturnes late in his life, during a period of melancholy, and a sad autumnal flavor permeates them all. They have a different feel from the contemplative Gymnopedies and other earlier pieces, although they are cut from very much the same mold of composition. They are very beautiful.
