You HAVE to love listening to music while you work. Particularly Pur dicesti, o bocca bella
, by Antonio Lotti, from If You Love Me, 18th Century Italian Love Songs
sung by the sublime Cecilia Bartoli.
She really does do the italian stuff very well, and the songs are all so gushy and lovey I could just die. I catch myself working away, then dipping into a big swoon, or raising my eyebrows in an ohmigod-isn't-the-world-beautiful-where's-my-champagne kind of way.
There must always be hope.
