    1. Joy indeed, Yam, and I'm glad the title tickled you. I've run out of was to say "He is risen" in English. ;)

  4. Oh that fabulous voice Perpetua. Has there ever been another treble like him?
    I think not.
    A very happy and blessed Easter to you and yours.

    1. I know, Ray, I could listen to his voice for ever. I really do think he was the most beautiful treble I've ever heard.
      Easter blessings to you and I hope all the services went wonderfully well.

  5. I like the painting very much, a modern take on the Resurrection. So lovely to hear dear Aled Jones again - he was a wonder back in the day, absolutely magnificent voice. Happy Easter Perpetua.

    1. I thought it would appeal to you, Trish, knowing your love for modern art. I agree about Aled Jones' voice, probably the most beautiful treble I've ever heard and a member of our very own cathedral choir. :)

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. A wonderful aria and Aled Jones' treble was extraordinarily beautiful.

  7. I'm a full week behind, but I'm so glad I didn't lose out entirely. What a beautiful piece of music, and lovely artwork. The Easter message does indeed bring peace. Thank you.

    1. Glad you managed to get here, Debra. Better late than never. :) This aria is one of my very favourite ones from Handel's Messiah and so beautifully sung here. May the peace of Easter stay with you.

  8. Dear Perpetua, the image, which looks somewhat like a woodcutting to me is gorgeous. And interesting to. Within the stone is a star. But it's not the Star of David--six-pointed. It has only five points and I'm wondering what the artist was saying with that. If you know, please let me know.

    It's so good to be back to blogging and to read your postings again. Peace.

    1. Oh, how wonderful to see you back blogging and commenting, Dee. It seems such a long time since you were last here.

      I'm afraid I can't answer your query about the star in the image. The artist Hanna Varghese grew up in a Syrian Orthodox family and lived in Malaysia, all of which may have contributed to the symbolism of her art. I agree it is a gorgeous image.
