Thread: Classical music thread

  1. #1

    Classical music thread

    I wanted to start a thread specifically for Classical Music. Any concerts or music performed or heard may be posted here:
    To start the ball rolling I am re-learning the Brahms German Requiem for a performance in April.

    I was involved in so many at school.
    Some of my favourites which I have heard have been African Sanctus and I went to school with his granddaughter!

    Suzi the only piece I remember from the African Sanctus is the Lords Prayer. My colleague at work went to college with David Fanshawe.
    I am rehearsing some music which is set in the life and times of Samuel Pepys. One of the group dresses up as Pepys and there are readings and madrigals and part songs. We are performing this in February and people are paying to come and see it.

    We performed 'African Gloria' arr Bill Tamberlain. Unfortunately I cannot find a recording of it. This was when Nelson Mandela died.

    Wow that sounds amazing! I love madrigals and things. I was really lucky when I was at school to be in the Chamber Choir and we made a CD (that actually went on sale to real people too!) and it was called Song through the ages. Loved it, we sang songs right from madrigals to much more modern things.
    I haven't been involved in any singing since I left teaching about 10 years ago now.. Really should think about it..

    I went through a phase of listening to classical music a couple of years ago, would listen to classic fm a lot.
    Really like the music of Ennio Morricone from the spaghetti western films, I think that's generally classed as classical.
    Favourite being, The Ecstasy Of Gold.

    This track is also sometimes used by Metallica (who have also done their own cover of it) to open their live shows and was used by The Ramones to close theirs.
