I'm cross posting this from classical_music



They sing each composer in the style that they wrote in, and it's so beautifully done. Awesome.

I was introduced to a wonderful CD of music by the Naxos podcast: Spotless Rose (Also available as an MP3 download for $8.99). This is a collection of songs/hymns dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Aside from their religious value, these are wonderful pieces of music, and some of them have quickly become some of my favourite pieces of music. The choral work on this disc is beautiful and inspiring. The choirs totally nail every track. My favourite is probably track 4 which is the second of a set of latin motets titled 'Ave Maria'. The careful use of major and minor seconds against more simple chords creates interesting and captivating sequences that keep you coming back again and again to listen over again. If you like choral music with a slightly modern bent, you will love this disc.

Now I must get back to my crazy work that I am procrastinating from.
