Submission Selfie Sunday

Meine lieben Freunde, I respectfully submit my photograph for your Sunday Selfies series – a PWS exclusive image of me singing to the January moon. With the fluffiest regards, Algy 🙂

Thank you for your fantastic submission, Algy! We love it!

PWS – Photos Worth Seeing

Today Algy made a special appearance on PWS – thank you PWS!

Algy was singing his favourite lullaby to the moon – in German, especially for the sake of his friend Jürgen who founded PWS, and who has several lovely young grandchildren who need singing to sleep 🙂

          Guten Abend, gute Nacht, mit Rosen bedacht,
          mit Näglein besteckt, schlüpf unter die Deck:
          Morgen früh, wenn gott will, wirst du wieder geweckt,
          morgen früh, wenn gott will, wirst du wieder geweckt.

          Guten Abend gute Nacht, von Englein bewacht,
          die zeigen im traum dir Christkindleins Baum:
          Schlaf nur selig und süß, schau im Traum’s Paradies,
          schlaf nur selig und süß, schau im Traum’s Paradies.

Listen to this lovely recording of Wiegenlied, “Brahm’s Lullaby” sung by Anne Sofie von Otter, who Algy has to admit has a much more beautiful voice than his own 🙂
