Year of Wonder – November

Two months to go in 2019, and I wish there were more.

Year of Wonder by Clemency Burton-Hill has provided me with one piece of music for each day of the year, and I've been sticking faithfully to the plan since January 1, listening to her recommendations for each day. If you have not yet begun the journey, I highly recommend purchasing her book and getting started. You can begin on any day of the year.

Whether you have already begun the journey or would like to begin now, I have embedded a Spotify playlist for Burton-Hill's recommendations for November. (The only piece I could not find on Spotify from Burton-Hill's book is the piece she recommends for November 20 – Param Vir's White Light Chorale for solo piano. Click on this link to find a performance on YouTube.)

I have also embedded videos for a few of the highlights from October.

Enjoy!
