As I said in an earlier blog post, I love listening to music as I read, so I thought I’d share a bit of the music I have been listening to whilst reading Uncle Tom’s Cabin seeing as it is a Sunday.
Messiah by Handel which I suppose is fitting due to the religious aspect of the book. Harriet Beecher Stowe is very vocal about her beliefs as a Christian.
And I recently bought Julien Jacob’s album Cotonou so I have been listening to him quite a bit too. This following track is my favourite on the CD, it feels very sensual and beautiful. On the album cover it says “Julien Jacob writes about inner and outer peace and his lyrics can be interpreted as you wish as they are a creation of his own imagination.” I love this kind of music and I really must get some more of his music. The only trouble is that it makes me want to move which makes reading hard if you’re chair-bopping.
And I thought I’d share some music I mentioned last time here because they are singing within a bookshop and how much more appropriate can you get then that?
Mumford and Sons
I love this band I also love discovering new music so every Sunday I think I will blog about the music I’ve been listening to over my reading week.
