  1. That was a lovely listen, Marina!
    He’s quite the fancy boy. And he lived a long life, for the times.

    Was catching up on Tim’s blog while listening!

  2. Over the Hills and Far Away is wonderful. Of course, I think of Led Zeppelin’s song released 76 years after Delius wrote his. I must say I really like the photos from your favorite hill. It looks like you can go over the hills and get far away.
