“The Exquisite Hour”

Well, I’d heard of Verlaine, who composed the poem on which this song (“L’Heure Exquise”) is based, but completely new to me are the song’s composer (Reynaldo Hahn), the pianist (Anastasios Strikos), and this remarkable singer (Nicholas Spanos).

So dreamy!

My thanks to the folks behind GayWisdom & Culture, who provide a digestible daily dose of biographical information about famous and obscure GLBTQ people world-wide.  And of course, many thanks also to the millions of camera-wielding organizations, publicists, and fans who post such lucious moments of artistry to YouTube.
