Week 263 – Clair De Lune

John Leeming’s contribution this month, although not festive, does fit the time of year very well. With darkness setting in well before 5pm and the heating on to make a cosy home, the Moonlight Lullaby is just the right type of thing to accompany the cracking of an open fire or, perhaps a glass of cherry before bed – whatever your situation, the scintillating tones of the Clayhall Compton in the hands of Stanley Wyllie is bound to complete your evening!
