Oh dear- this is a thread started by Mr. Dave.
I happen to like the basis for the thread....gives a good chance to be 'steered' towards something worth trying, or to stick up for favourites...of whatever provenance.

So, Mr. Dave - and, MODERATORS, perhaps this falls in your realm- a gentleman is plainly not well; should we perhaps remove this attempt and start another, similarly harmless one ? Or do we soldier on and 'ignore' the 'afflicted' posts.
 'Full of freedom and delight' this clearly is NOT, as things stand !
OK  I deleted that post... sorry Neil if I offended you.  The intent was innocent... just interested in only the music at the time, nothing more.

Thank you, Mr. Dave - that seems to be a sign to 'carry on', so....something a little cheerful for Christmas:

Christopher Rouse - Karolju ;  followed by his Guitar 'Concerto de Gaudi'.

What a good idea - I'll join you in that....followed by some Russian Christmas music; Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev's Christmas Oratorio.

Oh, it is sometime ago since I heard Thompson's Requiem. Good idea. I was in a choral mood anyway today. Scandinavian and Baltic works (Gjeilo, Esenvalds, Sandstrom and others).

Alfeyev's Christmas Oratorio is a good idea too. I changed that one, taking out the russian speeches. 

For some odd reason, every year I listen in the days around Christmas to Beethoven's 9th and Mahler's No. 8 symphonies.


I wish all the members a wonderful Christmas time and may the year 2017 become the best one in your life (so far)

Last evening I listened to as many of Sibelius' choral/orchestral and orchestral works (apart from the symphonies--another time!) as I could find on YouTube and was amazed at myself for never having listened well before to The Tempest, Swanwhite, Karelia suite, Pélleas and Mélisande, and Wood Nymph. I was bedazzled as you can expect and will now return for whatever else I can find. I am usually, for some reason, ever in pursuit of music that is new to me at the expense of these fine long-established works, but I realize that listening to these classics is more fulfilling.

Well said! So many of Sibelius's other compositions are, as you say, quite magical.

And I too am so often "in pursuit of music that is new to me" that I tend to neglect the great masterpieces of the classical repertoire. When I listen to the Beethoven Eroica or the 9th or Schubert's Unfinished or the Great C major or the Brahms 4th or the Dvorak New World or the Tchaikovsky 4th etc etc I am blown away every time with the force almost of a new discovery Smiley

William Wordsworth's magnificent and magical Symphony No.5 (the Lyrita release of a broadcast from 1979).

Soundtracks from mostly B (or Z?) horror movies and tv series. Kinda fun. Some of those guys' symphonies and concertos (if they existed) might have been pretty wonderful.
