I do like them but sometimes one is in the need for something which elevates the mind and the soul.

 

Here is the Germanic "Rum Till I Die" of sorts. "O Fortuna" from Carmina Burana's.

Ah wonda how long it'll be before Aunty Kneeru posts some "classical" Babla and Kanchan

Not much. I love Verdi's Nabucco and Ravel's Bolero.

Cool.

 

President Granger I believe is a fan of classical music especially Handel. Handel was court musician to King George I and wrote a masterful "Coronation Anthem" "Zadok the Priest" which truly captures the essence of God's charge to earthly rulers.

well that makes sense. I think i read that somewhere in the Chronicle.

 

I think Granger is kind of an Anglophile (not an insult) in the way he behaves. The manner in which he accepted Communion in the Anglican Church is the old school way of on the tongue hands close to breast. And I couldn't help but noticed how his State Opening of Parliament was a virtual copy of the 1966 State Opening where the Governor-General delivered a Throne Speech and the Speaker bowed to the Governor-General. I couldn't help but notice the Clerk and the Speaker bowing to Granger in the royal fashion.

Absolutely beautiful. I had no idea Mathis did anything like this. I'm always amazed at how singers, the ones without classical training, can get the accent of a non-native language just right. Like Mathis gets the Latin here just perfect.

 

What do you think of Haydn's Nelson Mass as this week is the 200th anniversary of Waterloo?

This is Haydn's "Te Deum" from his "Nelson Mass" which I believe was commissioned to commemorate the victory of Admiral Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar over the French Imperial Navy of Napoleon smashing the threat of French invasion of the Home Islands.

 

For you non-Catholics and non-Anglicans, a Te Deum is a prayer of thanksgiving. Here is a pretty decent version of Haydn's composition:
