I’ve posted this before, but I like it so *poof* here it is again showing exactly why religion, without question, needs to be kept out of […]Continue reading
Dvorak brings his symphony to a majestic close. In two parts due to youtube length limitations. Like the first movement, the fourth begins not with its main theme but with an introduction. 00:00:47 23.

When the theme is revealed, we find […]Continue reading
