Eric Whitacre – Lux Aurumque


My choir director is always regaling us with St. Olaf choir raves*, and I'm always impressing on him that Concordia College (Moorhead) is just as accomplished, in their own style. René Clausen conducts this masterpiece, and you can hear the cool precision of the voices.

*it's gratifying to see the MN choir gems getting cred from MO music educators

Roxy Music – More Than This / Jealous Guy

There were essentially three versions of Roxy Music. The Eno Years '71-'73, which encompassed the first two records Roxy Music and For Your Pleasure--and featured an experimental, avant garde, glam rock group. The second version was the Sophisticated Rocker period '74-'75 during which the band blossomed musically and they released the incredible 3 album run of Stranded, Country Life and Siren, after which the group broke up to pursue solo ventures. In 1979, the band reformed and lastly (also sadly least) became the dance-pop Roxy Music/what would become solo BRIAN FERRY that would be the most successful version of the band. In their defense, this period did produce the lushly beautiful Avalon, and Manifesto has it's moments. Still, the era pales in comparison to the first 5 albums, IMHO.
From Avalon (and obviously lip-synched) 1982

We'll end on their swell cover of John Lennon's "Jealous Guy", a song Bryan Ferry makes his own.
