M is for Me, Myself and Music: The mission / Nella Fantasia instrumental flute


YouTube link

I love music! I love almost every kind of music. Recently I found this young man from Norway, Houtblazer. He is a self taught musician and among the instruments he plays is the flute. Notice the flute on my book cover. That's because my heroine plays the flute and it is her music that empowers, The Treasures of Carmelidrium to save the day.

You may wonder about my choice today and think that it is because, The Mission, starts with the letter 'M.'
You are partly right. But I wanted to use this song in my book trailer. No good, copyright issues. So I am still looking for the best song.

Another thing that  you might notice is that this song only plays if you click the arrow. I don't have one of those music things on my blog because when I go to someone's blog who does have that music thing that automatically comes on, the music follows me after I leave and slows down my computer. That is annoying. I have to get out of the internet and wait to get back on. That slows down my whole day. So please folks, don't add the music thing to your blog. I will be grateful. You can always share your favorite music as I have done.
Cheers,
Nancy

This is beautiful. I bet you would like the norwegian group Secret Garden especially a song called Nocturn. Now I have to go listen to them.

I'm a big music fan too. It's such a universal language, and what's amazing about it is the different ways it speaks to us. I think we all have a favorite song or two that are truly memorable in our lives.

This is really beautiful - and I would have never guessed he was a self-taught musician. Thank you very much for sharing. :)

Bish Denham said...

That is so beautiful, gives me chills. And the pictures capture the music perfectly. Quite the talented musician.

What beautiful music. Thank you! And self-taught, it is quite an accomplishment.

That's a beautiful piece of music! Thank you for sharing it. :) I just love looking at the pictures, too . . .

Auto-play slows me down, too. And sometimes it starts blasting through the speakers because of volume changes.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

No music on my blog! Besides, with my taste in music, I'd scare someone.

Penned Pebbles said...

Don't like auto-play! I think it assumes that everyone likes what is playing. Great post and lovely song.

I could listen all day but I wouldn't get much done.
Beautiful.

I am SO the music addict. I love all kinds.

Good luck at finding the right piece of music for your trailer.
