Peter Gabriel - Biko; already referenced in this thread.

Gives me chills.

 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:       Heard this live 4 or 5  times,  including one of the Amnesty gigs at Wembley. Awe inspiring. Wallflower from the same album is also chilling.

Oysterband: Coal not Dole running into Bells of Rhymney

As someone who grew up in Nottinghamshire in the 80's, and now lives in South Wales, that does it for me, too.  :thumbsup:

As do no end of other Oysterband numbers...

ETA: And prescient:

Will it become like sacred ground?

Asking if men once worked here,
Way beneath this pit-head gear

The junior choir of my daughters school sang "The Sound of Music" at the Autumn concert.

The best part of 150 voices under 11 singing perfect multi-part harmony.

You had to have been there.

PhilO, I recall the Happy End - with the divine Sarah Jane Morris - singing that.  In Sheffield.  Moving.  Very very moving.

I went to a funeral recently for my neighbour and his widow put on Roberta Flack The First Time and stood there.  It was the most eloquent and emotional thing I think I have ever listened to.  I can't hear it now without weeping.

with the Miner's Strike, it was no 3 in January 1985, a couple of months before the end and I have always felt that the lyrics fit the support of the miner's wives, the use of the word 'Solid' echoing the strike and the personal relationships.

I lived in the same village as the author of that one, Aylesham in Kent.

Every time I hear 'Aylesham' I can't help adding 'Snowdown, Shepherdswell, Kearsney, Dover Priory and Dover Marine'.

Anyway, back OT.

I have to mention Wozzeck.

Peter Grimes too.

Oh Caroline - Robert Wyatt (and Shipbuilding, of course)

Oh heck, there's far too much. Time for bed.

Vaughan-Williams' "Fantasia On A Theme Of Thomas Tallis" (used in the Master And Commander film).

Maybe next year's Swindon Ride could go through Down Ampney, Vaughan-Williams' birthplace?  It always stinks of gas around there though.
Never tell me the odds.

For me, it has to be <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/x71jgMx0Mxc&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/x71jgMx0Mxc&rel=1</a>.  One of the most beautiful and evocative pieces of music ever written.  I defy anyone to listen to it and not be moved.  Turn the lights off, lean back in your chair and turn the volume up.

I have had the great privilege of hearing it sung  in the Sistine Chapel during Holy Week and was almost in tears by the end of it.  It is best sung in Latin but I think the greatest recording in English I've ever heard is the 1963 recording from the choir of Kings College Cambridge, conducted by Sir David Wilcocks and with Roy Goodman as the solo treble.  It is haunting.

The story behind it is quite interesting as well...

Thanks Regulator,  beautiful , and has made me put some Tallis on.

I think we've had this tread before, possibly at the old place...  this song was mentioned.  I played it and teared up.  Mike Hardings "Bombers Moon" <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/mpUK7Dm-IPI&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/mpUK7Dm-IPI&rel=1</a>

And I reckon for those of us 'of a certain age' then Nkosi sikelel' iAfrika also has quite an emotional tug as well.

Spem in alium is truly divine. I chose Tallis's O Nata Lux to kick off our wedding ceremony, which is also lovely.

God Moving Over The Face of the Waters - Moby
YouTube - God Moving Over The Face Of The Waters - Moby - Time Lapse

For those who have seen the film Heat, this is the music played at the climax of the film.  This is also one reason why I love Moby.

Quatuor pour la fin du temps (Quartet For the End of Time)- Olivier Messiaen

Composed in prisoner of war camps and premièred in Stalag VIII-A January 15, 1941. Haunting, one of the masterpieces of 20th century music with it's chilling dedication:

'In homage to the Angel of the Apocalypse, who raises his hand towards Heaven saying: "There shall be no more time"'.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

I heard Messiaens "Et Exspecto Resurrectionem Mortuorum" (I await the resurrection of the dead) performed by the Hilliard Ensemble at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, earlier this year. Absolutely stunning.
