Berlin evening with friends

Original playout date: 14 September 2007
Duration: 15:01

After the 7/7/07 meeting, which was shown on an earlier video (I’ll make this a video response to that one) we went back to our friends from Berlin who had invited us to stay and they showed us – and via camera you the viewers – around the much changed and ever interesting city of Berlin by road.

This probably has one of the highest number of languages in it as we are speaking English, German and Russian and then there is Schuberts Heidenroeslein in Japanese, selected as this is a song the German version of which is a party piece sometimes delivered by our dear friend Dr Peter Heinemann, featured here, when in the right mood.

Schoenster Herr Jesu!

Original playout date: 26 August 2007
Duration: 3:57

It’s very fortuitous that I should be uploading this right now. It happens to fall on a Sunday in my programming and was also originally made on a Sunday and is just the right thing for a Sunday, but all this would be but a minor coincidence. A far greater coincidence is that I had found my old Evangelisches Kirchengesangbuch which was given to me by Detlef and Margot Loehde from the Selbstaendig Evangelisch-Lutherische Kirche in Hannover who I also knew during the six months I spent in Germany as a brand new Christian 35 years ago in 1983

Huliganov’s “Nessun Dorma!”

Original playout date: 25 August 2007
Duration: 6:25

Although Viktor likes napping in the afternoons, he is the first to admit that doing so can lead to difficulty getting to sleep on time at night, especially on Sundays, leading to more tiredness on Monday. Therefore, in an effort to throw off the Sunday afternoon lethargy he sings “None shall sleep” from Touringdot Dormabile’s opera “Pol Pot”.

Huliganov’s “Je ne regrette rien”

Original playout date: 18 August 2007
Duration: 5:10

We’re out on the terrace again, one of my favorite places to be, this time the Fuji is doing the filming even though I am on the computer and usually use the Logitech webcam in the computer for singing to. But I always used to keep on experimenting with new methods. But the reason is that this time I am playing the chords and singing to at the same time. This is because I didn’t like any of the available backing tracks I could find for this one.

Playout date: 4 June 2007

This is an old Polish song performed by Mieczysław Fogg with me shadowing. The amount of views and the generally positive reception are probably rather more than my rendition deserves, but it is still very gratifying.
