Music - a balm for the soul

During this time in the limbo of concern, how about posting some of your favourite music? It can be secular or religious, classical, jazz or pop, orchestral, solo, vocal or choral - the only criterion being that it should be something which brings peace and comfort to our troubled souls. May I start with this one which is doing the rounds?

Headphones essential. 8D music.


"Told you not to worry
But maybe that's a lie
Honey, what's your hurry?
Won't you stay inside?"

David Gilmours' soaring guitar solo from 4.45 brings out the goose bumps.

Grey Mist of Wuhan by Arnar Gudjonsson - track 1 Mysterious mist engulfs the city - composed 4 years ago before any of the present horror started.

You can find it sung in English. But it's not the same somehow.

Totallly agree with posts #3 (the version on the Pulse video is stupendous) and #4, would also recommend "Slainte Mhath" by Marillion.

Bob Dylan, 78, live at Hyde Park last summer. Sandpaper voice you either love or hate but a great backing band,

Trim it out: I love everything that is going on with that song.. the way it moves around the room.

Alsacienne: I also love the Ganye Ballet from the same movie.

True music for the soul by Franz Liszt, a variation on JS Bach chorale. Georgeous lady at the end.

Local radio station must have someone with humor making the playlist, above was followed by REM - "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)".
Just lucked across a "classic" on a TV channel today.
