Year of Wonder – July

And the journey continues! I have been reading Clemency Burton-Hill's Year of Wonder since January and listening to the one piece of music she describes for each day of the year.

I have embedded the playlist for July below, as well as videos for a few of my favorites from Burton-Hill's recommendations from June. If you would like to read what Burton-Hill has written about each of these pieces (and many more), I highly recommend purchasing a copy of her book.

Enjoy!
