Following on from the Moog birthday thread I'll mention Isao Tomita and his version of Debussys' Gollywog Cakewalk - this is one really good video to the excellent music.
Snowflakes Are Dancing is a wonderful album, can't remember when/which decade I got it but all the tracks are great if you like a modern (electronic take) on old classics, al a Moog :)

William Orbit -> Pieces in a Modern Style - was a more recent take on that sort of theme (but I prefer Tomita)

Although I’m not religious, I do like some hymns (probably a throwback from when I was at school, and had to sing them)
Anyway, try this one out for size.

I have to compliment you on your choices of music Puff, you have excellent taste!

Mozart's clarinet concerto in A is one of my all time favourites along with Mozart's 23rd piano, but there are so many to chose from, Beethoven's pastrol symphony number 6 for instance

I love "the watermill" by Binge

I simply adore the Italian Arias:

Absoultely beautiful! I gather it has some link with members of the Italian resistance during the second world war, a forlorn call to a long lost mother. Its title, Una Furtiva Lagrima, means a furtive tear, with a depth of meaning it is a stunning piece of music to me.

Martha M' appari Ach so fromm is equally as beautiful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KU6F3_XM ... 9639082FF0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Very apt for this time of year is another all time favourite Nimrod by Elgar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhnMd1Jl7SA" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

As for Hymns there are some fantastic pieces! Dear lord and father of mankind is a favourite of my wife, we had it at our wedding. My favourite amongst many is "And can it be" (Sagina). There is a rendition of it on a songs of praise 50th album I have by the Honley, Geldholt and Skelmanthorpe male voice choir that is absolutely wonderful to me.
