Playlist - February 2024
Gardenia - purity, love and refinement

"Happy, Happy we!" This month's playlist is all about the joy and sorrow of love. Be happy for Acis and Galatea, learn that even Venus needs help in seducing Adonis (she calls on the 'chirping warblers'), feel with lovely but betrayed Selina and praise Molly St George. Enjoy a Barn Dance, a Chaconne, an Irish Air or a beautiful Fantasia ... This playlist is also available on Spotify.
