|Casals: "We have to leave it to the ignorant and the stupid to point out faults. We have to be glad of any bit of beauty."|
A different and no less exhilarating birdsong is "Song of the Birds" ("El Cant dels Ocells"), performed by cellist-musician-human extraordinaire Pablo Casals.
Should you be interested in a summer read, I heartily recommend Joys and Sorrows, Casals' quasi-autobiography.
