Call me old school… but I love CD’s - I have quite a large CD library that I enjoy daily
Music; Friend that it is, helped me through Covid in 2020. When concert halls closed, and with more time at home I began to seek new music so much that I created a CD challenge for myself in 2021.
This meant I would buy one new CD a month of music I didn’t already own. This challenge stretched my musical mind as I got to explore my appreciation of music further, feeling excited about what new music I would find and allowing new inspiration to come to me.
As the months went by I had a budget, a wish list and family to share my new music. I had a growing list of new and wonderful music for my library. I also kept our local CD store in business as i often bought from the store and not online.. how I love a CD shop !!!
I owe my music appreciation to my mum and dad. I grew up with music, having piano lessons at the age of 10 and then going on to play in church bands and school bands- dad also played in bands- so a music has filled my life.
So! Here is a list of my 12 new CD’s that kept me company during 2021.
January - The Best of Andrea Bocelli
February - Ludovico Einaudi – Islands piano solos
March - The Beatles Number 1 Hits
April - Piano Concertos Beethoven
May - Brandenburg Concertos Bach
June - The Seekers
July - The Everly Brothers
August- Sounds of 2021 - Praise & Worship
September - Goldenberg Variations - Bach
October - Water Music Suite - Handel
November - Diana Ross &The Supremes
December - My Christmas – Andrea Bocelli
I’m tempted to start the challenge all over again in 2022.

Music. Friend that it is -
cocoons us from our worries
enabling that hidden self to emerge.
