Reflections from a roving retirement
Lovely, isn't it!Tales from Clippy Mat sent it out last year, I think...I loved it then and enjoyed seeing it again...Now that's something we won't be having in San Jose!There are some good habits, you know...
Absolutely brilliant, Fly. Spontaneous order or orderly spontaneity and just watch those expressions. I was pretty sure it must have been posted before, but as a still newish blogger I just have to jump in with something so good. :-)
Oh please do make a habit of it! Wasn't that absolutely wonderful? I would have loved to have been there.Thanks for posting it Perpetua xxx
It really is lovely isn't it? There were a few around last year. but this was by far the best sound. The only other one which matched it in any way was the monks' 'silent' version.Thanks for this Perpetua.
I saw this last year and loved it - watching it again still had me in tears from the sheer joy of it. Perfect. Axxx
LOL, Ayak! I've just watched it again before coming to answer comments and I'm smiling all over my face as I type! I too would love to have been there. What an experience.
It's fantastic, Ray. I must have been on another planet last year as I didn't see any of them. It was a revelation when I clicked on the link the first time. :-) Such a good sound and such pleasure for all concerned. Now off to hunt for the monks 'silent' version....
As I said to Ray, this was totally new to me today, Annie. It's probably because I didn't start blogging until this February, so wasn't around it when it went viral last year. So glad you enjoyed it just as much this time. Enjoyed as in joy!
I'm smiling all over my face. Nice one, Perpetua! Haven't seen it before -- guess I've been hangin' with with wrong kind of virtual crowd -- till now that is!! ;-)
You too, Broad? Glad I'm not the only one who never caught up with this til now. It's such a joy to watch that I find myself smiling even when just thinking about it. It certainly brightened up my day. :-)
One of my favourites, I have it as my ringtone on my mobile phone,SP
It's magnificent, sin't it, SP? A real tingle-factor piece of music. I bet you can't ignore your phone with that as your ring-tone. :-)
Love it every time I see it! Thanks.
I am trying to get my head round doing a Flash Mob in Filey. Your vid is great, have seen quite a few around the world including the famous one at Antwerp Station but your UK one is one of the best. Good start to a gray day here on the North Coast. Am thinking 'When your anchor holds in the storms of Life' for Filey!
You're very welcome, Linda. I'm so glad to have been introduced to it, however belatedly.
My mind boggles at that thought too, Margaret. :-) This one is lovely, isn't it? It was the first I'd seen but I looked at a few others on YouTube yesterday and still think this is the best. I'm not sure it was actually made in the UK, but that doesn't matter. I love your suggestion for the Flash Mob song for Filey!
Not quite the same but my brother sent this link to the wondrous Gareth Malonehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0h39vBsiR68
Thanks for this, Rosie. Because we don't have TV when we're away, I've never managed to see any of his programmes, so it was great to see him in action.
Out of curiosity I googled the Christmas Food Court Flash Mob and found that it took place in Canada, at the Seaway Mall in Welland, Ontario, to be precise. The singers were from Chorus Niagara:http://www.chorusniagara.ca/
Wonderful !! Wish I could be there when one of these happens.
Isn't it, Jean? I would love to be at one too. Watching the faces of the bystanders and the participants, it looks like a marvellous experience for all concerned.
Dear Perpetua,Thank you for, as youi said in one of your responses to a comment, this "spontaneous order or orderly spontaneity." This day is overcast here as we slip quietly into late evening. And so this glorious song moved me quite deeply. Peace.
I wish any shopping centre I visit would have a choir singing the Hallelujah chorus rather than jingle bells.I saw it last year, but I could see it it and still enjoy it year after year.
Dee, I'm glad this lovely video of such wonderful music spoke to you. It's bedtime on a cold and windy night here in the UK, and I just watched it again for the sheer joy of it. It must be great for the singers to have given so much pleasure to so many people.
Hello Friko and welcome. I do agree with you. The Hallelujah chorus would make shopping so much more enjoyable. Being new to the video I keep wanting to watch it again to enjoy the surprised pleasure on the faces as well as the wonderful music.
I saw this last year too but it was lovely to revisit it again. I love a good flashmob!
It's well worth watching more than once, Wylye Girl, isn't it? I feel as though I've led a very sheltered life, as I've seen virtually nothing of the flash mob phenomenon until now. Blogging is definitely widening my horizons. :-)
Hello Perpetua:Yes, do make a habit of this. We loved it and have not seen it before.Regrettably, there appears to be no performance of Messiah anywhere in Budapest this Christmas. We shall have to wait for Easter!!
Hello Jane and Lance, lovely to see you back safe and sound. I'm glad you enjoyed the video. I've watched it several times now and still smile all the way through.Sadly I can't find a local performance of Messiah either, so have to make do with listening to my excellent CD version.
I welcome your comments and will always try to respond to them. Thank you for reading.
