Vaughan Williams Fantasia
The single piece, "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis," is one of the most hauntingly beautiful pieces of music ever written, kneading into your breast, your soul, your fiber a melody that speaks to the very nature of human loss and desire. This is a fine and faithful performance.
Sweeping, Tense, Breathtaking
Literally breath-stealing. At points enormous; at others quiet and incredibly intense. This piece is a partner to one's sadness today and elation the tomorrow. An exquisite, glorious, full musical experience.
Can't purchase song I want.
I would love to buy more classical music but most of it you can't buy by the song- what a shame and loss of revenue to the lame corporations who are in charge.
