Music


Hello to all my lovely tag friends!    


On Tag  Tuesday we have now nearly gone through all the seasons, so it seemed appropriate for this week’s MUSIC theme to choose Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons’ for my tag. 
In 2010 I went to see ‘The Four Seasons By Candlelight’ performed by The Mozart Festival Orchestra.  They captivate the audience as much with their traditional 18th Century costumes as with their wonderful music.  I love all those wigs, lacy cuffs, velvet tail coats and breeches adorned with braid and lace.  I used a photo of the orchestra on one side of my tag.

On the other side is the title of the show on a background of leaves which seemed to go so well with my tags of recent weeks. I added leaves in various colours ranging from the fresh yellow-green of Spring,  through to a snowflake covered leaf of winter (cut from an old Christmas card).   One leaf is cut from the Four Seasons sheet music!
I have trimmed the tag with some hand embroidered antique broderie anglaise and some braid to echo the trims of the costumes. There is a tie of black and white ribbon which looked a little like musical notes.
I made my tag and started writing this post on Tuesday, but when I was selecting the photographs I realised I wasn’t happy with it and started again this afternoon.  My tag is now eight layers deep in places!  But I think I am happy with it now!

Thank you for looking and also for taking the time to comment on my brown and sepia tags.  A couple of you have asked if that really was a real spider! Yes it was!  (he was found in the shed, dead already!)
I’m off now to look at all your musical creations,
Bye for now!

  4. Wonderful tags Jane, what a great idea for your tag and what beautiful music it is! I was fortunate enough to hear the Four Seasons at an evening concert in the Municiple buildings in Prague a few years ago and it was wondeful!

  12. Lovely idea, reminded me of my university days when Nigel Kennedy's recoding had just come out and we were all listening to it. (What an intellectual bunch we sound! We also all liked Enya and Simon and Garfunkel!)
