My Top Ten Songs of All Time

Cygnus has a cool meme on his blog about the top 10 songs of all time. Here are mine.

I intend to overwhelm you all with YouTube versions of these, perhaps one at a time, but for now, I'll just list them. These are in no particular order.

I've had the unbelievable privilege of singing all of these at one time or another.
  • Rutter's Gloria
  • Nutcracker Suit--Tchaikovsky
  • Four Seasons by Vivaldi
  • This Little Babe--Benjamin Britten: Ceremony of Carols
  • Ave Maria--Josquin Desprez
  • Ave verum corpus--Mozart
  • Halleluia Chorus--Handel
  • Es ist ein Ros entsprungen--Low How a Rose 'Ere Blooming
  • Stille Nacht--Melody by Franz Xaver Grube, Lyrics by Joseph Franz Mohr
  • Serenade to music--R. Vaughan Williams

I'm proud to say I have sung the Rutter Gloria, the Ave Verum, the Hallelujah Chorus (which our choir director inexplicably always wanted to do at Easter), and the Serenade to Music in choirs of some kind of another. Good list!

Wow, I didn't know you sang, Cyg!! Cool!!! I think the Rutter Gloria and the Serenade to Music are my favorites.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
