Other than Peter and the wolf, music by Sergei Prokofiev is new to me but I thought we should check out one more of his works before we move on to a new composer so here is a piano concerto. It is long - a half hour and not exactly relaxing music, so you may want to just listen to part or break it up. Somtimes we will listen to music like this while we draw or do handwork. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCeo1vyewEg
Another beautiful hymn by Mrs. Cecil Frances Alexander
Jesus Calls Us
Jesus calls us; o'er the tumult
of our life's wild, restless sea,
day by day his clear voice soundeth,
saying, 'Christian, follow me;'
as, of old, Saint Andrew heard it
by the Galilean lake,
turned from home and toil and kindred,
leaving all for his dear sake.
Jesus calls us from the worship
of the vain world's golden store;
from each idol that would keep us,
saying, 'Christian, love me more.'
In our joys and in our sorrows,
days of toil and hours of ease,
still he calls, in cares and pleasures,
'Christian, love me more than these.'
Jesus calls us! By thy mercies,
Savior, may we hear thy call,
give our hearts to thine obedience,
serve and love thee best of all.
A link to a nice organ rendition of the tune I'm familiar with singing this hymn to follows: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A40O_0ui-qM
