    The Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughan-Williams. The piece is based on the poem by George Meredith.

    I +1 listening to Sibelius and Vaughan Williams. I don't particularly care for RVW's choral works and I haven't listened to enough of Sibelius to know if he even wrote choral stuff.

    I've been a bit stupid and I have been listening to everything via YouTube. I have an Amazon Prime membership, which includes (most of) their music library. I'm now listening off of that. Higher sound quality.

    From about 2 weeks ago, our Symphonic Winds here at USM: (They're our second band out of 4, for reference.)

    They're playing:
    David Maslanka's "On this Bright Morning,"
    Percy Grainger's "Colonial Song,"
    and (part of) Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana," arranged by John Krance.
    Maslanka starts around 3 seconds in, Colonial Song starts at about 9:20, Carmina Burana at about 15:40.

    Edit:
    Also they apparently streamed our Wind Ensemble Concert on the 16th, too.
    Here's a link:

    Concert Program is:
    "Four Scottish Dances" by Malcolm Arnold
    "Aria di Chiesa, Pietà Signore" by Alessandro Stradella, arranged by Victor Fraschillo
    movements 3 and 4 of "Reflections on the Mississippi" by Michael Daugherty, with our Tuba professor, Dr. Perry, as soloist,
    "Circus Bee" by Henry Fillmore,
    "Traveler" by David Maslanka (again? It's the same program as another thing they're playing in a week or so somewhere else, so I guess that's why.),
    and Prokofiev's "March," Op. 99, arranged by Paul Yoder.

    ...time to edit the message expired a minute before I clicked save. Grr, I have to type this again.
    Well the second video actually starts at 17 minutes in with Arnold piece, and Aria starts exactly 30 minutes in, Daugherty starts 37 minutes in, Circus Bee starts 50 minutes in, Traveler starts about 55 minutes in, and after some talking Prokofiev starts at 1:13:00.

    I've decided that the best Christmas you can give to most people is an Amazon Prime membership. It's $100 for a year. Sometimes less for students/teachers/veterans. One of the fun things you can also do is, if you don't mind your delivery taking a couple extra days, you'll get some Amazon bucks to spend.

    Anyhow, I've recently listened to the brand new St. Vincent album, Masseduction [Explicit]. (If you decide to go on You Tube to watch the videos from this album, I'll warn you: they're pretty NSFW.)

    And the new Andrew Bird album in his "Echolocations" series, River. Which is very SFW.

    FWIW, if your page times out/crashes you can go back to the page you were on and most of your post will still be there, ready for you to hit "Post Reply." Obviously, YMMV, but while I was typing the above post, Firefox crashed on me. Went right back to this tab and was missing all of one word.

    Or, of course, type into your favorite text editor, then copy and paste that into the forum. ;)
