Definitely of interest: Arianna Savall, daughter of early music specialist Jordi Savall.



She's released two albums of her own music. Worth looking into if you like this sort of thing.

Sacramentum is weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaak, it should without a doubt be replaced. It is easily the worst album on that list

Odd, I find it to be one of the best. I agree with you on Joined in Darkness, though.

Metal / Re: the term "classical music" did not exist until 1930s

This makes sense, as up until the 1900s popular music was European folk, hillbilly or variations on the waltz/proto-big-band sound.

When it became clear that this style was taking over ("prole drift"), musicians needed a way to keep classical from being dumbed down. Outside of Gershwin, Copland, Dvorak and other partial intelligences, they succeeded.

I know those words, but that post makes no sense.
