the older I geti

I really really like choral music.

here are some composers you should check out.


Tomas Luis de Victoria.
GP da Palestrina.
John Taverner (with two Rs)(from the renaissance)
Mendelsson's Elijah is amazing.
Britten's war requiem is quite impressive too.
everyone loves Bach, and for good reason.

that should get you started.

Thanks for this list.

I love Palestrina, Bach; don't know if I have heard of the first one you listed, and need to hear more of the others you listed...

I love Mozart's requiem and really want to see this live one day...

I've been listening to a real mix of music lately, including a CD of Janequin's choral music... quite upbeat compared to some of the Russian chant I listen to...
