- The Crimson Jazz Trio: King Crimson Songbook, Vols 1 & 2 (A former King Crimson drummer, Ian Wallace, deftly adapts King Crimson music to the jazz trio format. Surprisingly effective.)
Code: Select all
Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears: Scandalous. Ballad of Jimmy Tanks (Saw them at Austin City Limits live)
Che: Sounds of Liberation. The Knife
Earth: The Bees Made Honey In the Lion's Skull. Miami Morning Coming Down II (Shine) (When I just want to listen to nothing)
Earth: Hibernaculum. Ouroboros is Broken (Another that's been burning out the platter in my hd)
Zero 7: When It Falls. When It Falls (Sia Furler has such a soothing voice)
Soundgarden: Superunknown. Spoonman (Ahh memories from my youth. Saw them live)
Type O Negative: Dead Again. Hail and Farewell to Britain (Another band that has a special place in my heart. RIP Pete Steele)
Jesu: Silver. Wolves
Mad Season: Above. River of Deceit
Massive Attack Vs. Mad Professor: No Protection. Radiation Ruling The Nation (Always appreciate a Massive Fan -> Alver)
Nine Inch Nails: With Teeth. Everyday is Exactly the Same
Pelican: What We All Come To Need: Strung Up from the Sky

I have the Montreal Symphony version with Te Kanawa, and I'm familiar with the Shaw and Rutter recordings, but I'm looking for something else. I recently heard a snippet of a recording that used a fairly small choir and sparse instrumentation, with a boy singing the soprano solo, rather than a female soprano. It was sublime, but I missed the recording credits.

Just one week ago, we had on the radio a live performance - recorded on April 13 in Berlin - with Sir Simon Rattle conducting the Berlin Philharmonic, and Kate Royal [soprano] & Christian Gerhaher [baritone; a big star in Europe]. Of course, I would have been willing to burn it to CD and send it to you as a gift. However, on the Shaw recording I prefer the Durufle Requiem, especially its 'Sanctus'...
BTW, I still have the feeling that only a very tiny minority of our members is into classical music - so, it's surprising for me that someone should ask for Faure [To be truthful, though, about 80% of my several 1000 recordings are operas].
