In the early eighties there was a miniseries called "East of Eden." I never saw it or know what it's about, its' values, etc. But from that came a beautiful song called "An American Hymn" that I first heard Placido Domingo sing. Last night I was looking for the sheet music to this (couldn't find any free, but I didn't look long). In my search I came across this version of it (with flute playing the melody). Michelle Kwan skated to this and the two together seem to me to be absolutely elegant. Enjoy (links to two different performances -- I like the first one best):

For those who like Placido Domingo's voice (I do) you can hear him sing this on #12 on this page http://www.rhapsody.com/album/allstarte ... stId=61426

So, I've got another tune to work on.

Beautiful tune, but I think I enjoyed watching Michelle Kwan even more. She is so graceful.
