Abide With Me: 50 Favourite Hymns
Double Decca, 1996
Compiled here are fifty of the most beloved hymns performed by three of England's most distinguished choirs. Every selection here is sung in an appropriately dignified manner and if you're up for over two hours of consistently well-rendered quintessentially English treatments of these vernacular favorites it simply doesn't get any better than this.
David Garrett is a rock 'n' roll concert violinist! If that sounds like an oxymoron, you'll be surprised by his powerfully fierce take on classic rock anthems when played by he and a symphony orchestra! This ain't long-haired music in a Leonard Bernstein way; it's long-haired music in a mullets and beer bongs kind of way. Listen for yourself on CD or be dazzled by the imagery, too, with the DVD!

Jewish Cello Masterpieces
Leggiero Records, 2002
A beautiful collection of great Jewish Music. Classics by Ernest Bloch and Max Bruch, mixed with rarely heard gems by Maurice Ravel, Zavel Zilberts, Jacob Wasilkovsky, and David Meyerowitz. "Wie Shlecht es is Ohn Gelt", a Yiddish Theatre gem, is alone worth the price of admission for its mixture of pathos and humor. The songs by Zilberts are an important and beautiful part of the Jewish music legacy that must be heard.

Guilty Pleasures is the long-awaited follow-up to Renees Grammy winner The Beautiful Voice. This album allows Renee to indulge in musical cherry-picking, singing songs and arias in eight different languages. The sheer, unabashed beauty of these pieces provides their thematic connection. Ranging from familiar favorites like the Flower Duet from Lakme (sung with Renees friend Susan Graham) to rapturous, rarely-heard melodies of Tchaikovsky, Dvorak ...
Mnemosyne / Garbarek, Hilliard Ensemble
Ecm Import, 1999
It's been six years since these same performers got together to create one of the decade's more unusual experiments in musical alchemy. Beginning with the raw materials of early music and modern jazz, the four male voices of the Hilliard Ensemble joined with jazz saxophonist Jan Garbarek to see what would happen when the proper measure of old music and new style were combined, shaped by the performers' considerable experience and collective ...
