Frederic Remington, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Piano Concerton No. 21 Andante, John Greenleaf Whittier - Trust

Another bronze sculpture by Frederic Remington this week. So many of his works include horses and action - this is no exception. If you are looking for a more of Remington's work check out this site.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is well known and much loved in classical music.  I hope you enjoy the next few weeks as we feature his work.  Following are a couple of links to short biographical sketches of his life and information about his life and works.

I hope you will enjoy this peaceful piece by Mozart - Mozart - Piano Concerto No.21 Andante (You can skip the ad after the first bit.)

Another wonderful poem by John Greenleaf Whittier:

The same old baffling questions! O my friend,
I cannot answer them. In vain I send
My soul into the dark, where never burn
The lamps of science, nor the natural light
Of Reason's sun and stars! I cannot learn
Their great and solemn meanings, nor discern
The awful secrets of the eyes which turn
Evermore on us through the day and night
With silent challenge and a dumb demand,
Proffering the riddles of the dread unknown,
Like the calm Sphinxes, with their eyes of stone,
Questioning the centuries from their veils of sand!
I have no answer for myself or thee,
Save that I learned beside my mother's knee;
"All is of God that is, and is to be;
And God is good." Let this suffice us still,
Resting in childlike trust upon His will
Who moves to His great ends unthwarted by the ill.
