I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Re: Beautiful music

For jazz, I'll go with

E.S.T. - From Gagarin's point of view
Bill Evans Trio - My man's gone now
Lars Gullin - Danny's dream
Miles Davis - Concierto de Aranjuez
Jan Garbarek & Hilliard Ensemble - Officium (classical crossover but still great)

Re: Beautiful music

Folk:

Rustavi Choir - Tsintskaro
Steve Baughman - Ramble to Cashel
Tom Paxton - I give you the morning

There must be tons of more but I almost only have Swedish folk, won't mention those.

Re: Beautiful music

Classical is simply impossible but these just MUST be mentioned (full-blown nerd mode but wth):

Richard Strauss - Vier letzte Lieder no. 1, im Abendrot (with Jessye Norman)
Bach - anything but if just 2 picks let's take the mass in B minor and the Goldberg variations
Mozart - also tons but Et incarnatus from the Mass in C minor (w/Sylvia McNair singing); my God that's beautiful
Palestrina - Missa Papae Marcelli (with Tallis scholars)
Händel - Messiah, first 3 pieces are the best ones
Schubert - piano trio no.2 in e flat, 2nd movement (known from "Barry Lyndon")
Brahms - Ein Deutsches requiem

...and then to to round off maybe

Puccini - E lucevan le stelle, from Tosca
Chopin - Marche funebre
Pergolesi - Stabat Mater, first movement
Messiaen - Quartet by the end of time, final movement
Dowland - Come again
Faure - Elegie in C minor for cello and piano
Mendelsson - Lieder ohne Worte
Buxtehude - Membra Jesu Nostri
Byrd - Mass for 3 voices
Lassus - Missa Entres vous filles
Wagner - Tristan & Isolde, Liebestod
Rachmaninov - Vespers

I am a huge choir lover, these quite accessible pieces should be more known:
Pärt - Magnificat
Frank Martin - mass for double choir
Poulenc - Quatre petit prieres Francois d'Assisi


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.
