    really beautiful versions of everything here. The Barber piece is why I bought it, but the Tallis/Williams is excellent as well. I think the sound quality is just fine with all the crackle and pop gone. CD might be cheaper than Itunes if you find it in the bargain bin. The LPs were designed to be bargains.
  • Beautiful!

    I'm not a huge classsical music person but the Tallis song was stunning. I was able to individually purchase it on Amazon (see Amazon's "MP3 downloads") for .99 - it went automatically into my itunes.

    Despite the age of the release, this is still the standard. This recording maintains appropriate pace and acoustics for one of the most inspired pieces of spiritual music ever composed. Don't pass up on it even if recording quality is not up to modern standard.
  • thank you for pointing that out ;)

    wow...considering that "strings" is in the title, you would think that that would be obvious. In my opinion, this is a wonderful recording with one of the greatest conductors of our time.

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
