From “Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey” in Selected Poetry of William Wordsworth:
With an eye made quiet
by the power of harmony,
and the deep power of joy,
We see into the life of things.
“Musicians in the Netherlands who are self-isolating due to the Covid-19 pandemic have recorded a virtual version of Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy‘. Members of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra performed the Anthem of Europe from their homes. Each individual part was then added to a final mix, along with an archive recording of a choir segment. The song, part of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, has been adopted by the EU as the European anthem.”
