    Tallis's Spem in Alium makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, absolutely sublime piece. Heard it performed by Leeds Festival Chorus in Ripon Cathedral, sat in a side aisle with no view of the choir, it's amazing to just listen as the voices join in and build. Used it at my dad's funeral, more for my benefit than his, he went to the flames to the RAF March.

    The guitarist had one of those BC Rich guitars you could buy out of your mam’s catalogue for £70 with a missing machine head, the bassists strap was fixed to the top horn with just gaffer tape, you get the picture! But they were brilliant and were loving it. I watched their whole set, what made it more funny was our singer/other guitarist was a corksniffer about gear and he looked in complete shock shaking his head
    I’ve found, gear can get in the way too often.

    You see some players with so much tech, they take an age to set up. And when you’re playing live in a small venue, what’s the point?

    I used to stick a DS-1, SD-1 and a Chorus in front of a Marshall. And that was it.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Same here. Had to many patch leads go on me over the years to ever consider a massive multi-pedal setup again.

    Yeah definitely.

    I had a fad with a big pedalboard for a few years then got fed up with it.
    I’d try to find sounds that would throw a curveball into the mix, one of the favourites was the Boss Pitch Shifter Delay. On one setting your guitar would sound like a Synth, played at the Bell in Derby and a bloke in the audience swore blind we had a keyboard player behind the stage or a Sampler

    Much easier with a minimal set-up though, you concentrate more on your playing as well.

    Just sit back, close your eyes and let this one wash over you.

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    This is on my "record again" list (which keeps getting longer) so one of this country's finest young organists will have to do.

    The original is for strings as well (and not by Albinoni at all, but by a 20th century composer called Giazotto), but I actually think the organ solo version is much more effective.

    Way too much Bach here to link individually. Some of the more recent videos are not yet available, but...
    https://www.bachipedia.org/en/works/...rder=date+desc
    Some of the lockdown videos aren't really cantata performances though but their conductor doing a talk about them.

    These guys are so epic that anything they do is epic but, there are a few highlights here:

    These are two of Bach's most famous cantatas
    https://www.bachipedia.org/en/works/...tat-und-leben/
    https://www.bachipedia.org/en/works/...ns-die-stimme/

    This one is called the Peasant Cantata, isn't written for the church, the way they do it in an alpine chalet (they're swiss) is pretty fun
    https://www.bachipedia.org/en/works/...neue-oberkeet/

    This was for a queen's funeral, it's absolutely beautiful
    https://www.bachipedia.org/en/works/...-einen-strahl/

    https://www.bachipedia.org/en/works/...ir-danken-dir/

    Written for his job interview at Leipzig - https://www.bachipedia.org/en/works/...h-die-zwoelfe/ (He didn't get it. Not until the first choice pulled out).

    This is a similar project but more broad - these guys, mainly Dutch, are planning to record everything.

    Almost recorded it earlier. But I hadn't played it since before lockdown, maybe even 2019... Needs a bit more tidying up before it can be filmed.

    It's quite frankly a crime that we're several pages into this thread and nobody has mentioned Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

    Tchaikovsky's Old French song is also one of my favorites. It has a grandeur and melancholy to it that's hard to put into words.

    If it helps, I've held a lock of Mozart's hair in my hand.

    I have actually played a few notes on Frederic Chopin‘s piano in his villa in Majorca.
