#TuesdayTune ~ Miriam Stockley

Welcome friends to NatashaInOz.com! I am so glad you came to visit today! I am afraid that you might be here for quite a while if you listen to all of these beautiful songs for today's #TuesdayTune.

I had a very hard time choosing just one song....I have chosen three!

Have you heard Miriam Stockley sing!

Her voice always brings shivers down my spine and has even brought me close to tears!

Images from here.

Miriam Stockley (born 15 April 1962 in Johannesburg, South Africa) is a British singer. Her work is influenced by the African music from her home country, evident in this piece, Rain Song from her 2003 album Second Nature.

Her song, Perfect Day, was the theme song for the BBC children's programme The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends which ran from 1992 to 1995. The song was written by Colin Towns, and has since become the unofficial 'Theme for the Lake District!'

This final song I would like to share is probably my favourite, Adiemus. The original version is by the group Adiemus, featuring Miriam Stockley as lead vocal; but this version is a remake that she did as a bonus track for her most recent album titled "Eternal."

There are several versions of this song, all composed and conducted by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins and all of them performed by Miriam Stockley. The London Philharmonic Orchestra was featured in the original version (1995) and in the 4th album he formed the "Adiemus Orchestra"

I hope you enjoy also Adiemus!
