Ralph Vaughan Williams, Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis

Sir John Barbirolli conducts the Hallé Orchestra, 1946
Beautiful, thank you.
Bowden was right- CCP is a university. I consider it my University of Whiteness.
Music like this helps salve the wounds from our struggle for survival in a post White privilege America.
Something like this could never come out of the voodoo Diversity mind-

Antidote to Voodoo is the Voice of Whiteness-
Another brilliant piece. No one conducted this better than Barbirolli.
Ever think about doing a CC music podcast? An hour or so of weekly sonic recharge might be a good thing for a lot of us. Perhaps one on English composers, another German, another French, et cetera. (Glenn Gould’s “The Idea of North” comes to mind too. Thematically grouped selections: the idea of war, the idea of community)
Just a thought. Might be valuable and interesting.
This music was very moving. Christianity has inspired alot of great music, art and architecture.
I bet this would sound very otherworldly if heard inside a cathedral.

Morbid stuff–not my taste.
Wikipedia: “Until 1992, Górecki was viewed as a remote and fiery figure known only to a few connoisseurs, primarily as one of a number of composers responsible for sparking a postwar renaissance in Polish music. In 1992, 15 years after it was composed, a recording of his Third Symphony, Symphony of Sorrowful Songs—recorded with soprano Dawn Upshaw and released to commemorate the memory of those lost during the Holocaust—became a worldwide commercial and critical success, selling more than a million copies and vastly exceeding the typical lifetime sales of a recording of symphonic music by a 20th-century composer.

Huey Lewis introduces his “daughter Liv”, but she looks like Gwyneth Paltrow, child of a long line of rabbis, mother of Moses.
White privilege parade, or was Glenn Miller a Jew?
Glenn Miller was not a Jew.
And since you brought up jazz: I recommend Richard Sudhalter’s “Lost Chords” for a history of white people in the foundation of jazz. Numerous white jazz musicians since the early twentieth century have maintained that jazz is not black music and they are right.
Well now I know why Gorecki’s insipid 3rd symphony received such good press. The Holocaust narrative again. Thanks. Lance any boil . . .
Gorgeous composition. I never heard it before now. Apparently this was written in 1909. In a way it reminds me of the soundtrack of a modern movie that I hadn’t yet heard or watched. I’m grateful to be introduced to such a fine piece.
