    An adaptation of a Classical Byzantine Communion Hymn into English, made by the vocal chamber ensemble specialized in Slavic and Byzantine repertoires, Capella Romana. The composition is of the Master of the Byzantine Music, John Papadopulos the Cucuzeles (13th c) in Plagal of the First Tone (soloist John Arvanites):

    After the Pianist - how about some Wagner? The Lohengrin Ouverture (supposed to represent the Divine Aura of the Holy Grail) was said by Nietzsche to have an "opium-like" effect. Who knows, perhaps they play this in Heaven as eternal background music:






    On a more tragic note, Siegfrieds Trauermarsch out of Götterdämmerung in a very decent performance (at one point someone even seems to lose consciousness or something):

    Just clicked this thread to see if Kitsune is as predictable as I thought and posted something from a German composer.
    Damn I was not disappointed, it does not get much German than that.

    Btw am I alone in despising Wagners music? It annoys me so much. And I generally love classical music. Although to be fair Romantic music as a whole is mostly annoying to me.

    I couldn't resist. I have a reputation to uphold, after all. But be fair - for some reason in classical music German composers are particularly difficult to avoid. (It gets especially bad if one counts Austrians as ethnic Germans, oh boy). As far as Wagner is concerned, the guy wrote some very decent stuff (just listen to the two pieces above for f... ehem...Heaven's sake) and it is really disgusting to see how every You Tube comment channel is full of Wagnerwasadamnnazi comments (he wasn't by the way, on account of being dead). If you despise his music then, by all means, don't listen to it. I for myself do not think too highly of Debussy (in my opinion Impressionists should stick to painting pictures) and I am absolutely disgusted by Stockhausen although he was German. But you don't see me writing hateful comments about them all the time.

    Imo you need to relax and get rid of your victim complex, but w/e.

    To not derail further, here a piece I really love:




    The other parts are attached to the video.
    Although I like the Karajan - Berlin Philharmonic version much more.


    And here something for Kitsune (although I am pretty sure it has been posted before):
