If I recall correctly it was the 1812 Overture used during a scene which showed puffed rice being created by being shot out of a cannon.

Dear Lord, lest I continue in my complacent ways, help me to remember that someone died for me today. And if there be war, help me to remember to ask and to answer "am I worth dying for?" - Eleanor Roosevelt

The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.
-- Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)

I am guessing that would be in the late 50's or early 60's. With the reminder, I can remember it somewhat.

stevenpd;

Your right. Everytime the cannons fired a big burst of Puffed Wheat would fly through the air.
To the "YOUNGSTERS " amongst us I remember it quiet well and I am not Ancient. Decrepit and Senile maybe but not Ancient, that comes in 22 days on me birthday.

LOA;

My oldest Paula has us both beat hers is in 16 days. Come to think of it perhaps I am Ancient or at least knocking on the front door. I am growing more fond of Rachmaninovs' "The Isles of the Dead". Do you think that means something?

Seems I came back to Celtic Radio just in time for this! Maybe it was calling me tongue.gif If we want to make it more relevant to the forum, we could always talk about classical music inspired by the Celtic lands!

I forgot to post this in the melodies thread. The fact that I still love it after writing a thorough analysis paper on it for an advanced music lit class must say something! Grab und Mond by Schubert. Those are some talented guys too!

I attended a 4th of July celebration years ago where the 1812th overture was performed with multiple live cannons. It was a moving experience I'll never forget. When the cannons went off, your body shook from the impact. I had heard it before, but theres nothing like hearing it with live cannons.
