Faure — Wieder Kopfmusik!


While we’re on the subject of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written (also here)…

When we were there two weeks ago, the used book store in San Luis Obispo was playing something quietly in the background, too faint to hear, really, just the faintest fragrance of sound. Ineffably beautiful, and clearly by Gabriel Faure, but I couldn’t put a name to it.

It has been playing in my head ever since. Wonderful, but what was it? So I searched through the CD collection and found it: Cantique de Jean Racine.

Nice that the set of most beautiful music ever written is so richly populated.
