    Default The most beautiful sacred music i heard so far...

    Ockay im speachless since im in a medieval trip, i bought another one of naxos early music serie, name ANIMA MEA ''sacred music of the middle ages'', Cosmedin ensemble perform these works.

    Track 1 Ardona thalamum is divine god like , felt bless by god and smile.track 2 is interresting, while some other track are interresting they remain minimalist, but its ockay sound pretty inspiring.

    Anybody bought the same record i did and what in the hell is a bowed psalterium because it sound rad

    That about it folks your looking for something retro for prayer or meditation purpose you can't go wrong whit this release.

    Have you heard this famous version by the Sistine Chapel Choir, back when they still employed castrati?

    I don't know about ecstatic bliss (the choir as a whole is a bit ropy) but it's certainly interesting.

    No. I have the Choir of St. John's College, Cambridge and their singing is blissful.

    I agree, and on the subject of the Matthew Passion, which I saw a performance of a couple months ago, the two arias I remember having the most profound emotional effect on me were:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Yw9eTYeddA

    and

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x03bGt6RMsY


    and to pick something from my other favorite, Mozart, the Laudate Dominum from his Vesperae de Domenica K321. Not as famous as the one from K.339, but just as beautiful.

    "it sound rad" - I presume this is a form of praise or astonishment

    Anyway, a bowed psaltery is a form of zither that is played with a bow, although it is anachronistic to have it on a recording of early music as it appears to be a twentieth-century invention

    I have to say: Grechaninov: "Passion Week". The recording with Charles Bruffy and the Kanas City Chorale on Chandos is out of this world. The choir is so good, at times you might wonder if this is even human anymore...

    It is sacred music that can touch the soul profoundly.

    - - -

    Note to the above: "Rad" is an American slang term that was mostly popular in the 80s. It is a short form of "radical". And yes, it means praise and astonishment in one.
    I also had not known about it until I learned it from my wife. :-)

    The psaltery itself is a very old instrument. It would absolutely not surprise me if someone had played it with a bow back in the middle ages as well...

    Hi trazom,

    You do know your stuff, BRAVO!!!

    If I may humbly proffer:

    A most solemn rendering of a great aria by Bach...

    I cry like a baby girl and wrap myself into a fetal position when I hear this aria
