    Today's election/MAGA music:



    Siegfried, the hero, rides down the mountain to complete acts of valor and heroism as Brünnhilde bids him farewell.

    SIEGFRIED

    Shall I then perform further deeds
    of valour through your virtue alone?
    You select my combats,
    my triumphs reflect on you;
    astride your steed,
    sheltered by your shield,
    I can no longer count myself Siegfried,
    I am but Brünnhilde's arm.

    BRÜNNHILDE

    Hail, Siegfried,
    victorious light!
    Hail, resplendent life!

    If you get the chance, BBC Music Magazine is the route to discovering more about music, each issue coming with a CD full of performances of something or other. For us living here, we might as well get something decent for our money to offset all the crap they come out with.

    Anyway, for 'Variations on a Theme of Trump Won the Election', how about something a bit older than classical

    "Classical" is a bit of a misnomer for the thread title. Think classical with a small c, to include predecessors such as renaissance, medieval, old modal music, etc.

    For sure, but what I posted isn't even quite even art music.

    I've had a love for Renaissance music, the golden age of English music, and the polyphony of the Church since my A-level music teacher invited me to join the local church choir to sing it. It's nice, in this video, to see that there's still goodness and beauty even in a city Americans are always heaping shite on.

    I know this is a cliche, but I like it.



    And then a different version...

    One of my favourites, even though it's not necessarily god-tier classical is Holst's Planets suite

    If we're including early music under our classical banner, I'll add Kings & Beggars. It's a Ukranian group playing medieval music (you can hear the heavy rolled Slavic R sounds in the Latin) . They have quite a bit on the 'tube.

    Ugh nobody linked this yet



    If I ever own a concert hall there will be a coughing guard dog that is trained to use its teeth to drag anyone who coughs out of the venue
