    Classical Music

    We have threads for Hip Hop and Rock and Blues, so I thought I'd start one for classical music.

    I just rediscovered the Requiem by John Rutter for orchestra and chorus. Here are two of the pieces from it:

    Agnus Dei:
    I've always wanted this piece playing outside my house on Halloween. It's perfectly eerie.

    Lux Aeterna:
    The second half of this is some of the most peaceful music I've heard.

    For the full spectrum of emotions try DeBussy's Seasonsor Stravinsky's Firebird but to really get the blood rolling, anything by Wagner

    Bedrich Smentana - The Moladau, great piece of music.

    Trevor Jones also did an amazing job with the Last of the Mahicans soundtrack.

    John Rutter? ick ick ick ick (leaves to go clean away the impurities).

    I've had to sing so many of that man's clap-trap pieces it makes me physically ill to think about. I mean, no offense, and to each his own and all that, but I really can't handle his music. At all.


    For something much, much better, and still in the same general ballpark, try Morten Lauridsen

    As for classical music generally, shit, I don't even know where to begin. How about Arcangelo Corelli? Corelli rules. He even has his own progression named after him.

    I know Rutter has written a number of fluff pieces. I've had to sing a number of them as well. However, I've always loved the Requiem whenever I've heard it.

    That Lauridsen piece is fantastic. I'll have to look up more of that.

    My favorite piece of choral music, though, is the Ave Maria by Franz Beibl.

    Re: Classical Music

    As played out as Canon in D Major is, I still like it (as well as all Baroque)...here's a different take by a guitarist in Taiwan.
