    Ravel's Bolero-a favorite of the Pharisees.

    Any Met Opera Broadcast with Milton Cross as the host.

    Just guessing. I could be wrong.

    Probably Jesus Christ Superstar. Not classical but hey, who can resist being called a superstar?

    Actually since Jesus was a Jew, he probably would have been into whatever music was played at Passover in temple celebrations.

    That may be true in a strict sense, but it pegs Jesus as an historical figure, which is not quite the perspective of the thread title.

    I expect he would be most impressed by music of Marian devotion, as surely Jesus was himself deeply devoted to his mother, sometimes called Queen Mary, or the Queen of Heaven, & firmly committed to a belief in the divine feminine as a supreme force in the universe, as high as any; as well as music composed in praise of his father, the Creator of heaven and earth, etc..

    I think you've hit on something. I consider myself as devout a Christian as I can be, but I like music which is honest. And sometimes honest music is confessional, which means it has to speak of something uncomfortable to come to a sense of release or catharsis. I think he is more concerned with the spirit behind the music than the music itself.

    "God," asked Adam, "why did you make Eve so beautiful?"
    And He replied, "So that you could love her."
    "But God," asked Adam, "why did you make her so stupid?"
    And He replied, "So that she could love you."

    Please stay in classical genra,,, era can be ars antiqua to modern day..
    Sorry, can't stay in classical genre. Since Christ was a carpenter, he'd be listening to blue-collar music: Bob Seeger and Lynrd Skynrd.

    Jesus's last few words from the cross - Behold your mother.

    Behold Your Mother
    25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold your son!” 27 Then He said to the disciple, “Behold your mother!” And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home.

    It Is Finished
    28 After this, Jesus, [a]knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” 29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth.

    "Since Christ was a carpenter, he'd be listening to blue-collar music: Bob Seeger and Lynrd Skynrd."

    Jesus was no carpenter. There were no carpenters in Jerusalem during those times, as the builders were all stone masons. (A mistake likely due to the 4 Gospels being written down several decades later.) A connection to stone masonry would fit, as it would put Jesus & his family in close proximity to the Temple, as temple builders, and possibly architects. Nor was Jesus from Nazareth either, as the town of Nazareth didn't exist two thousand years ago. Again, he was probably connected to the Nazarene sect, and the later Gospel writers mistakenly came to associate his Nazarene affiliation with the later town of Nazareth.

    Which is not to say that he wouldn't enjoy listening to Bob Seeger and Lynrd Skynrd...

    or maybe since Johnny Cash represented the blue collar so well, He might just listen to Johnny and June Carter Cash and also the Carter Family!

    I find Mauridsen’s Lux aeterna to be completely warm, inviting, and spiritually Christlike. Such music can be of comfort during troubling times.

    Surely some medieval and renaissance Gregorian chanting wouldn't have gone unappreciated. I don't think there is anything much more holy than listening to Byrd and Tallis.

    It may go unappreciated to a Hebrew person of antiquity. The premise of this thread is rather preposterous.
    Short-term thinkers are rewarded with reelection, while those who dare to take seriously our responsibility to future generations commonly find themselves out of office.
