Dull Would He Be Of Soul Who Could Pass By

It is a stark and beautiful sunlit morning here in the town of Rye, and so with cheerful heart we shall, here at Sven Radio, be assembling several days of music and sounds that hopefully will bring peace to the troubled breast. But firstly, a sonnet by William Wordsworth:

                 "Earth has not anything to show more fair;
                   Dull would he be of soul who could pass
                   A sight so touching in its majesty:
                   This City now doth, like a garment, wear
                   The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
                   Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
                   Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
                   All bright and glittering in the smokeless

We have dozens of artists, musicians, Monks, Holy men, Humanists and Atheists in our ranks. We are without prejudice representative of a vast slice of what could only be termed the freedom of humankind. We are here to learn. We seek the truth. So lift up your hearts, and seek the beauty of the sky, both at night and of the day, and remember that you are the centre of the Universe.

It is only by maintaining our vigilance that we can prevent and fight against the encroaching greed of heavy industry that seeks to destroy, and exploit the lands and seas. Seek alternative energy. Use what nature offers do not fight it. Embrace the beauty of the world, and preserve the diversity of the life upon it.

So now to the music - we will be playing Banco De Gaia, Tosca, Tim Blake, Tai Chi, Prem Joshua, Monks of The Dip Tse Chok Ling Monastry, The Tantric Experience, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Tangerine Dream, Peter Kater, Terry Oldfield, Medwyn Goodall, Solar Fields, Sun Electric, Global Communication, and Aural Planet + many wonderful pieces - Thank you Sven & Co Peace on Earth to you all and stay tuned.
