    Default Psalms, part 2 of 2 (A la carte poll #51)

    Part of a continuing series of polls, which simply asks:
    Which of these works do you like?

    My goal is to build a general picture of the musical interests on TC.

    Please vote for *all* of the pieces you like.
    Options are available for voters who don't know any of the works, and those who know some but don't like any of them. Even "I don't know any" is an interesting and welcome piece of information.


    Thank you to everyone who's voted so far!
    You can still vote in all the previous polls. For the full list, see the blog entry linked in my signature below.

    Here's 13 more settings of biblical psalms.

    After the low participation and even lower votes of yesterday's poll (vote here please!), let me assure everyone that I didn't intentionally pick so many unpopular or little-known works. But that seems to be what many of them are...

    Forgot to vote for Bruckner, which is a dramatic work, as far as I remember.

    A good deal of the pieces I only have a foggy or no knowledge about, but the Monteverdi and Vivaldi are great.

    Schütz and Pärt would top the list of those I need to check out further.

    Am ashamed to have voted 'I don't know any of these works'.
    But I do intend to remedy that state of affairs. Keep up the good work, Nereffid.
    My fiddle my joy.

    Voted five, from Bach to Pärt. I think Parry deserves more attention (in general) than he is getting.

    I don't know any of these works and don't recall part 1 of the Psalms poll, which maybe had the one I really like--Handel's Chandos Anthems, which are verses from the Psalms. Meanwhile your list has me looking into Mendelssohn: Psalm 42, op.42 ('Wie der Hirsch schreit').

    You would love the Monteverdi I think.

    I selected that and the Schütz. I don't know the rest.

    The Schutz and Monteverdi are among my all-time favorite pieces (not exactly original of me, I know).

    I don't know any of the post-1750 works in this poll except Bernstein...need to remedy that.

    This has always been the least-voted-on poll. You heathens!

    Let's see if we can get this above 40 voters?

    I'm so sorry... I missed the Monteverdi!
