Rimsky-Korsakov's Russian Easter Festival Overture


For someone like myself with an orchestral background it's amazing how a piece of music I loved for years before becoming Orthodox has taken on such a new meaning. If you're not familiar with it I highly recommend you check it out.

Indeed!  One of my favorite orchestral works.  The fact that it has a bad-**** trombone part gives the work an added touch, in the opinion of this trombonist. ;D

*Groan* You've just led me to the upsetting news with that post.  It was still too early, but sadly that killer disease spares no one.

On a Beethoven kick right now.  Listening to the fourth movement of the 3rd Symphony "Eroica."

Neal Morse - ?: Inside His Presence

I just bought two albums of Neal Morse. Progressive rock is a beautiful thing.

Just finished listening to lenten hymns by the Greek Byzantine Choir led by Mr. Lykourgos Angelopoulos.  Very nice.  I've just used it to replace the Doxologies CD that little Eleni has been going to bed to for a few months.
