The background music to this, uh, video of a cat is “For I will consider my cat, Geoffrey,” a movement for solo soprano from Benjamin Britten’s choral work Rejoice in the Lamb. Rejoice in the Lamb is a setting of Jubilate Agno, a poem by Christopher Smart, about whom my favorite fact is that he spent a decent chunk of his life as a denizen of Mr. Potter’s Madhouse. Feel free to peruse the full text of Rejoice in the Lamb.
