Thursday’s Special: Traces of the Past Y2-02

If you were a regular visitor here two years ago you might remember this little church from Corsica.

I found appropriate that it should be featured again, this time in the Traces of the Past series. (You may notice how my attitude towards photo editing and enhancing has changed over the years; the fact that the colours in this shot are more muted and softer does not mean that my memories of the place are fading).

Contrary to my earlier practice today I am sharing a different type of tune. It’s not sacred music, Gregorian chant or similar that I usually post with photos of churches. It is not even (entirely) in Corsu (Corsican language). It’s in French and it features the French slam poet and singer Grand Corps Malade whose cooperation with the Corsican group I Muvrini honours this land of courageous people that paid a high price for the French victory in both World Wars.

Una Terranova

…..

La nôtre est une flamme qui ne s’éteint pas
Elle vient de la Terre du Commun
Elle dit… mon pays a besoin du tien
La nôtre est gravée sur le seuil des fontaines
Et les arbres centenaires
