And another - Sloop John B. Many a refrain of "I wanna go home, I wanna go home, I feel so broke up I wanna go home" sung in various pubs around Weston Super Mud in the early sixties by inmates of RAF Locking. Otherwise known as Appies.

I agree, that aria is transcendentally beautiful, CISTRS.

But then, so is much of Wolfgang's work, like this moving piece from his Requiem ...



I once sang in a choir performing that, and the conductor (with his back to the audience) had tears running down his face -and NOT because we were singing so badly!! Great music can have disturbingly powerful effects on the emotions.

Forget the movie - if you happen to know what it is.

The final battle sequence in the Battle of Britain, all the more effective for relying solely on William Walton's music.

I've lived in London for more than 40 years, and can't speak Welsh, but hearing Welsh hymns can give me goosebumps and bring a lump to my throat.

Here's a modern arrangement of one of the most popular.
Apologies for the BGT setting.






And one of my favourites, also in an unusual setting - Cardiff Arms Park, 1993.



I'd like it to be sung at my funeral.



My background explains why I find them very moving.
I wonder if others do?

One of my favourite modern composers conducting his theme from Schindler's list played by Itzhak Perlman, himself a wonderful violinist.



I had never heard Calon Lān nor Gwahoddiad and agree they are both moving pieces. There is something unique about the Welsh male voice.

ob, in the 'Making of' she's a little older, well judging by the cellist on the right who's gained some grey hair by then. She is more commanding and the work put into the recordings is bewildering. The conductor/production manager said at the end of one recording, Cecilia, that was very, very good, but there was one note in bar ? - would you like to do it again? One note in 8 minutes of perfection. Such stamina.

I find her very attractive, in a Romanesque kind of way. Affectation in the facial expressions? One the one hand she is trying to imagine holding the child with ice in its veins in her arms, and on the other, maintaining control of her emotions. Such a delicate balance.

On the whole the program was vibrant and positive, talking a lot about castrato singers. Cecilia being mezzo-soprano is able to emulate some of those extraordinary singers. (poor souls )


During that program they talked about the coloratura of her voice and that puts me in mind of Sumi Jo. Her pitch seems near to spot on, but her voice generally is lacking in that coloratura that (put in ? due to brain failure) demonstrates. She's little known, German, and breathtaking. All I've got to do is find the CD. Then there was Sir Paul's Liverpool oratorio. Kiri Te Kanawa was her usual wonderful self, but there was a little known (by me anyway) singer that - to use the vernacular - blew me away with her beautiful purity of tone.

So often such people become (just can't resist it) unsung heroes.

Anyone help with the name?

John Butler Trio - Ocean

One of the best instrumental guitar pieces ever

No need for lyrics when you can play like this!

For Thomas Tallis enthusiasts, have a listen to Spem in Alium.

I'm with wings folded on Spem in Alium. Incredible piece of music. The other on my list would be Mahler's Chorus Mysticus, the finale from the 8th symphony. It's the Alles Vergängliche nicked from Liszt's Faust symphony.

I'd have to go with Chopin...
The crescendo with the violin gets me every time.

One other was a youface of Alex Parks 'Cry' set to video from 'Bastion and the like.
It's been deleted a while ago, just tried to find it.
Shame

Magnus,

Re spem in alium

I have heard it "live" twice. Once was in the Sistine Chapel in Rome (well Vatican I suppose)

T'other time was on the esplanade in front of your castle, near to where the gun is fired at one o'clock. Kids from Leith, I believe, sang it.

I was much more moved by the Leith kids' version.

They maintained the purity of the sound but gave a warmth which you do not often encounter.

It was not windy that day, which helped!

Response from our local crematorium:-
If you want a specific piece of music I recommend using an original CD.
