I compose music because I must give expression to my feelings, just as I talk because I must give utterance to my thoughts. --- Rachmaninoff

If you would discount religious and elitist music, there wouldn't be much be much pre-20th c. music left.  8)

Music written for churches, popes, kings, princes, dukes and sofort...?  More please.... :D

Various bits of the short religious music that Faure wrote. And also the Cantique de Jean Racine and Messe basse.



When this arrived this week I was slightly disappointed at the lack of texts, then realised that all of the Latin stuff is pretty much standard.

EDIT: This version of the Cantique de Jean Racine is rather plodding unfortunately.
