    Fernando Sor’s Op.9, “Variations on a Theme of Mozart” - Spanish Music - Selection No 12

    The man that hath no music in himself, Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, Is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils; The motions of his spirit are dull as night And his affections dark as Erebus: Let no such man be trusted. William Shakespeare He lead an interesting life did...

    Spanish Camino Music – Selection No. 7

"That would be cool in a relaxing, yet...

    After my first Camino I found I liked to kind of zone out once in awhile with music or if I needed some extra energy or motivation. Always looking for good 'camino' songs if anyone has suggestions. I just added Thick as Thieves by Natalie Merchant to the song list for next year. Wonderful song...
