has anyone heard sarah brightman's 'Misere Mei'? I am looking for a CD that is full of music exactly like that... i am not sure what you would call it or who sings anything like it... but i was hoping maybe someone listens to that kind of stuff and could help!

if anyone can offer any kind of suggestions, i am completley out of ideas, i have googled about everything i can think of...

here is a link to a sample of the song... the best i can desribe it is like a cathedral choir type music, i have no idea what else to call it!
(it is number 9)

Yes! I think I can help you. You are listening to one of my favorite musical styles. It's called Gothic Revival in some circles. One of the BEST CD's ever made is Extasia, A Requiem Sequence - Music Of Jean Catoire And Hildegard Von Bingen / Brough, Harrogate Ladies' College Chapel Choir
You can find it on Amazon.con for almost nothing used and in great condition or buy it new. I hope this helps!

I like her! lol Im going to have to find some of her stuff Ive been looking for new things to listen to... im assuming you already listen to Sarah McLachlan (and the chieftans) and Enya, Enigma type stuff... Have you tried Celtic Woman or Graeme Revell (he did a really cool song for The Craft soundtrack called Bells, Books and candles)

Yes, I have a few. The Hildegard series is beautiful. It's so ethereal, I highly recommend it and you will be hooked. I also have:

The Origins of Fire: music and visions of Hildegard Von Bingen

Feather of the Breath of God (Von Bingen)

Music of the Angels (Vom Bingen)

Choral Moods, by Gregoria Allegri

Medieval Carols, Peter Abelard



I hope you like these, they are very, very good in my pea brain opinion.

I love metal, bring it, really. Nine Inch Nails, Skorpions, ACDC, Offspring, whatever. I love metal. But I was raised on classical from the age of 3 and played violin for 10 years....the first chords my ears ever heard were classical and over the years I've expanded on that. It IS good music, it IS! Tell him that as a metal lover he'd appreciate the chording and complexities of the arrangements...flatter him....maybe he'll think twice about slamming it.

I think if you buy just one Hildegard Von Bingen CD you will be sold. She takes it to a higher level and she lived through the 12th century - she was real.

Good for you!

The only thing I could think of is that you might like Hooverphonic. They are a different genre, but similar somewhat. There are samples here:

You might also be interested in some of the Projekt bands like Lycia, Mira, and LoveSpiralsDownwards

I should also mention that Projekt has a sampler CD called "A cat-shaped hole in my heart" dedicated to Sam Rosenthal's kitty Vidna, who died from Feline Leukemia. The proceeds benefit the Tree House, a no-kill shelter for cats in Chicago. http://www.projekt.com/cat/default.htm
