Trying to find some of my favorite Composers, Aaron Copeland (Apalachian Spring, Rodeo, Fanfare for the common Man, all of his; A Truly American Composer) Strausse (Ein Helden Leiben, thus Sprach Zarathustra) Mendelsohn(I like his because they sound like you are at sea) Ben

One CD I like a lot is [url]http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000006OGX/qid=1025391314/sr=2-1/ref=sr_2_1/002-5459054-2609602[/url]. Also, Emerson, Lake, & Palmer do some pretty interesting adaptations of classical music (Copland's "Hoedown" and "Fanfare for the Common Man", Blake's "Jerusalem", and lots of stuff by Mussorgsky, Prokofiev, among others.) Styx did some as well - a rendition of Handel's "Messiah Chorus" with the 5 band members on vocals and Dennis DeYoung on St James' Cathedral's pipe organ, and Bach's "Little Fugue in G," again with DeYoung on the pipe organ. (He also plays the Cathedral's organ in "I'm OK" on the Pieces of Eight album.) I like John Williams' music a lot, too (Star Wars did it to me!) and I desperately hope that I can pick up "Pops Goes the Fourth" on my TV this coming Thursday!

Aaron Copeland's "Appalachian Spring" is one of his greatest. I'm sure everyone knows the theme, they just don't know who composed it. In my previous life, when I was studying music theory in college, after 6 weeks of Schonberg, Webern, and Berg, I thought I was going to lose my mind. Mind you, I appreciate 12-tone Serialism as an art form, but the end result is not something you can whistle on your way to work (to say the least.) "Appalachian Spring" was like a breath of fresh air and helped me to regain my sanity.

Appalachian Spring is a beautiful work... Aaron Copeland is awe inspiring. Ben
