The Music of St. Paul's Cathedral
Charles Hylton Stewart
Hyperion UK, 2000
St. Paul's Cathedral ImpressiveCollection of Anglican Hymns
St. Paul's Cathdral is the second largest cathedral church in the basilican style, exceeded only by St. Peter's Rome. New York City's St. John the Divine is larger than St. Paul's, but with decidely gothic elements. All three cathedrals have fine choirs, but St. Paul's and St. John's continue the noble and unique sound of boys and men in the English tradition. St. Paul's great organ is one of ...
His Story & His Music
Vox (Classical), 1995
American Gramaphone, 2003
A different side of Mannheim Steamroller
This is the first album of Mannheim Steamroller that I have heard other than their Christmas offerings. I bought it because it appeared to be patriotic music, which I love. This album did not disappoint. The first track was The Star Spangled Banner. The beginning was very dramatic, the middle was a little of a letdown, but the number ended strong. The second track, American Spirit, is one ...
Prelude: The Best of Charlotte Church
Excellent listening music
This is the best CD i have ever bought. I have over 100, the music is great to listen to in the car, while reading, house cleaning, and even at work. Charlotte has an excellent voice...it is amazingly beautiful. I wish i would have heard about her sooner. the varied music is wonderful. i bought it simply because it contained the closing song from the movie "beautiful mind"...boy was i ...

Mormon Tabernacle, 2003
All new recordings, with a strong patriotric theme
Surprised that no one has reviewed this yet. Amazon.com doesn't give much info on this release, so I thought I'd rectify that. This is the second brand-new release on the "Mormon Tabernacle Choir" label, following their April 2003 release of "Consider the Lilies." Again, several of the arrangements are by Mack Wilberg, with direction by Craig Jessop and accompianment by the Orchestra at Temple ...
The Opera Band
RCA Victor, 2004
A very pleasant surprise
There are few albums available for lovers of classical crossover music, and Amazon doesn't even have a category for it, so it was pleasant surprise to find this album and a delight to listen to it.
Three Hit Albums from the U.S. Military Bands
John Philip Sousa
Collector's Choice, 2004
Bicentennial Military Music
The music from these three US Military Bands was originally released in 1977 as single Long Playing Records to celebrate the Nation's Bicentennial Celebration. It is missing the US ARMY BAND (which I regret) but otherwise the music is GREAT and the Bands are FIRST CLASS as you might expect. Except for the different services renderings of THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, no marches are duplicated. If you ...
Splash of Pops
J. Rosamond Johnson
5 stars? More like 50 stars!
Keith Lockhart has continued behind the heels of John Williams at the helm of the Boston Pops Orchestra in extraordinary fashion since 1995. Anyone who has been privileged to see him conduct the Boston Pops can feel the enthusiasm he has for the orchestra's traditions and legacy- and for classical music. This theme certainly holds true for this CD. I have been collecting a set of good CDs for my ...
Stars & Stripes: America's Greatest Hits
John  Stafford Smith
George M. Cohan
I have the CD at home and the songs sound fabulous. I've heard the Houston Symphony's version of the Star Spangled Banner many times on TV as this anthem has been used at sign-off (when this was happening). It's as powerful a version you'll hear. Probably the finest patriotic music CD you can find out there.
Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring / Mormon Tabernacle Choir
Johann Sebastian Bach
George Frideric Handel
Bach and Handel Treats
The unfortunate thing—if anything can be said to the contrary about this collection—is that is an older recording. As far as authenticity, what was available in the days of Bach and Handel to perform their music, and what they may have had in mind as the formidable way of presenting it to the public—as well as to the heavens—may be quite different things. Viewed in this way, authenticity may ...
Abide With Me and Other Favourite Hymns
New English Hymnal
This is a compilation of the most wonderful traditional hymns you can find sung by the Castle of Windsor choir in England. It creates a very spiritual ambience in your home when played and it's appropriate for times of prayer. Most of the hymns can be found in a hymnal named "Hymns Ancient and Modern", in the "English Hymnal", "The Hymnal 1940" and "The Hymnal 1982". The ancient hymn "Abide with ...
Hallelujah: 35 Great Choruses
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Excellent selections... my favorite is the Sanctus by Gounod. The music seems to build in the blood... the organ being the heartbeat. If you turn the volume up just right... a memorable experience. Beautiful!
Broadway, My Way
Atlantic / Wea, 2003
the best female singer of the great american standards.
i am turning 60 years old this year. i went to my 1st.broadway musical in 1960. over the years i have had the honor to see almost all of the giants of american song, garland, streisand, patti lupone, lena horne, betty buckley, barbaracook etc. in "broadway, my way" linda eder cements her place as the best of the best. from an anthem like "i am what i am" to the lovely "on the street where ...
Great Choral Classics from King's Choir of King's College, Cambridge
Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina
These musical performances are done with consummate artistry. The attack, the phrasing, the tempi, the interpretations are all presented with professionalism and first-rate musicianship. The organ and the setting, as well as choir and director, are associated worldwide with the very best in church music and this CD does not disappoint. Beloved church choral classics are all here and all ...
O Magnum Mysterium
Tomas Luis de Victoria
I am very happy about this purchase. The recording was of very good quality, and the music is gorgeous, ethereal!! It is music to soothe the soul and mind.

Silva America, 2002
Fireworks from USSR
During more than a century we Europeans have turned our backs to a culture east of "The Iron Curtain". I think that by this, we disregard a tradition of the outmost quality in the word. As a Norwegian myself, I am very proud of the culture of my own country. May be that is why it is so easy for me to be enriched so much, by learning from cultures from other countries. For thousands of years ...
Enduring Freedom: America's Greatest Hits
John  Stafford Smith
Good choice of tunes and songs
This CD contains a good choice of American patriotic tunes and songs. The recording is good and the price is affordable. If it is your first CD of American patriotic tunes and songs, it is a good choice. However, if you prefer the same tunes and songs played or sung by an other orchestra, band or choir, just shop on Amazon; there are hundred of different versions.
Simply the Best Classical Anthems
This is a good sampler, since it covers what you would want in a classical music CD. Looking at the tracks, it has the classic hits, such as "Ride of the Valkyries," "Toccata and Fugue," "Fanfare for the Common Man," "'Jupiter' from `The Planets,'" "Eine Klein Nachtmusik," and "Hallelujah Chorus." There are also some new pieces that I have fallen in love with, such as "The Young Person's Guide ...
