    Default Dowland to Stockhausen (A la carte poll #61)

    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.


    You can still vote in all the previous polls - please do! Follow the links in my signature below.

    I've voted...just had to say that I momentarily thought this thread was an invitation to

    Download a Stockhausen.

    Now I really ought to try listening to some of these things you keep putting in your lists...I'll start with those I've heard of like the Faure.

    Have fun. Faure's Requiem is one of my favorites.

    LOL.

    As usual a handful, the star of the show this time being Faure's Requiem. I love Brahms' chamber music in general, but his SQ's not so much.

    I know it is well-loved by many people and I have no axe to grind against it or those who enjoy it, but there are only two discs (out of almost 3000 on my shelves) that have 'escaped' from their CD cover in 30 years ..... and this is one of them. The Box is on the shelves but there is no disc inside it.
    I have no idea when, or how it got lost as it isn't something I enjoy listening to (I'm afraid to say) and I haven't missed being able to play it either (eek!)

    Well, that's...too bad? I sang the tenor part of the Introitus & Kyrie and Agnus Dei of this requiem in youth choir 8 years or so ago. That may have contributed to my love of it.

    ^^^ Yup. OK - I'll have another listen (I have two versions of it) so I'll listen to it again later on today.

    I often look at these polls and use them to guide my own listening, so thanks for them, Nerefidd

    I clicked quite a few (if you click on one of the numbers in blue on the right-hand side of the list, you can see who voted for which).

    One of the standouts for me in this list is the Vivaldi Gloria which is glorious (hahaha - I know you will cringe at a good .... er, bad ... pun) and I had a good old sing-along to it just the day before yesterday. Its an exuberant, diverse and compact piece and IMHO at its best in one of the HIP versions available

    This is the recording I like best. Imo, the piece doesn't come off as well if it's too "heavy".

    Picked favourites only. As far as I remember, Arensky and Elgar are fine, but I don´t remember details. For Vivaldi, I like the grand style, like Muti´s EMI recording.

    Good Lord, so you can. I thought I'd been slipping my votes in anonymously all this time!

    Second time in as many days Vaughan Williams' 5th Symphony has come up...I really need to listen to it.

    Nereffid will soon be in a position to be able to rank us according to our musical tastes

    ... as reflected in his polls, of course!
