Ah, Music. This lovely bint tagged me, likely because rather than discuss the deep stuff of God and the Universe, she'd rather diggle on our listening habits.

Worthy, if I may say so myself.

So here are mine:

Total Volume of Music Files on my Computer

Heh. Heh-heh-heh-heh... Um. Okay: 25.42 GB. Yes, Gigabytes. All paid for too, none of this filesharing crap... don't get me started on copyrights.

Last CD I bought

John Tavener: Lamentations and Praises, performed by Chanticleer.

Song Playing Right NOW

I Thank You God for Most This Amazing Day, by Eric Whitacre, of a poem by e. e. cummings, performed by the Brigham Young University Chorale.

Five Songs I Listen to a lot or that Mean a lot to Me

Hmmm... Okay:

1. Be Thou My Vision, trad. sacred: My favorite hymn. It shall be played at my funeral, or I'll crawl out of my casket/urn and play it myself.

2. Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine, by Eric Whitacre, lyrics by Charles Anthony Silvestri: A choral masterpiece, a brilliant bit of harmonic storytelling. Really, I recommend ALL of Whitacre's works.

3. Cantate Domino, by Arvo Part, trad. sacred: Brilliant, like floating through a hazy, ethereal church.

4. If You Want Me To, perf. by Ginny Owens: A beautiful song of surrender and trust in God.

5. Pachelbel's Canon in D: Not for any aesthetic reason, but just because when I hear it, I see my lovely wife walking down the aisle all over again (Everybody now... Awwwwwww...)

There are more, such as O Magnum Mysterium, by Morten Lauridsen, or Deora Ar Mo Chroi, by Enya, or Motherland, by Mary McLaughlin, or Dante's Prayer, by Loreena McKennitt, or, erm, that's enough...

Five People I Am Passing This Baton to: Lordy, who the hell am I going to send this to? Sure, I'll pick five, but they'll be five who wouldn't do this if I begged... lessee...

Hell, all the people I'd forward to are already done... I don't have that big a circle! And there are those I wouldn't tag, so I guess I screwed up the whole stupid game! HA!


It's about me, dummy!!!
