A Song in My Mind

Yes, I've had a song rolling around in my mind for the past few days. I think it comes from just finishing watching the BBC version of Emma. My dear hubby bought it for me, and, yes, patiently sat there and watched it with me (though I caught him snoozing a few times!). *sigh* I just LOVE romantic things. We also have the other version of Emma with Gwyneth Paltrow, and I loved the song (which the BBC version unfortunately did not include) "Did you not hear my Lady" from Handel's Tolomeo. Talk about a beautiful, romantic song! YouTube has a moving version of it from Robin Hood (which I haven't watched, so I cannot tell you if it is a good or bad watch). This version of the song is sung by Aled Jones whom I have never heard of before, and it is amazingly beautiful--a worth listen to if you are a romantic as well (just click on the song name above). Mmm, perhaps I'll have to learn the words myself to sing it properly. I might as well since it's in my head anyway.
PS. Thank you Susie V for the great information!!! I tried to find a way to email you but couldn't, so I hope you read this thank you!

Aled Jones has a divine voice, doesn't he? Lovely to hear you've discovered him - you have great taste by the way!

If you're looking for his album where "Did You You Not Hear My Lady" is featured, you'll find it on his wonderful CD called "ALED" which was released in 2002 on the UCJ label. It is one of the fourteen beautiful tracks there.

If you have any problem finding a copy, don't hesitate to contact me through Aled Jones' website Forum - you'll find the link through www.aledjones.co.uk - and I'll happily help you.

Kind regards,

Susie V
