An extremely poignant song from the sixties. Tim Rose with 'Come Away Melinda'. A 'must listen to' song.

Marathon effort, Bo! Love his Toccata in D.

Have you got his flute sonatas? Wonderful, light and airy - not something I immediately associate with Bach ...
Still a lot of great music to listen to before I finish! (I have to admit that I am using it as background music while I am doing other things like reading this forum!)
Thanks for the tip, I don't have any flute music by Bach, time to correct that!
I mostly buy my classical music from https://www.eclassical.com then I can listen to it directly after downloading!

@BosseBe Through my 15" Tannoy speakers, his Toccata in D is not background music! ;)

Have to play it while my wife is out of the house, like Orff's Carmina Burana ...
Since I live in an apartment, I can't really play at realistic levels most of the time, my neighbours would probably complain!
But of course when I play the Toccata and fugue in D minor on my Audio Pro Black Diamond speakers at realistic volumes, it has to be done at daytime so people don't complain.
I bet that yours are louder though!

I fully understand. Part of being an adult is consideration for others ... old fashioned view, I know.

My stereo will output 50W RMS per channel, both channels driven, in the bandwidth 18-23,000 c/s, with almost zero measurable distortion. Amplifier and speakers are nearly 50 y.o.! The speakers have flat response from 18-23,000 c/s +/-0.5 dB. Weigh about 130 pounds each.

Makes a nice noise, but my hearing's pretty shot these days.

Flute music I can highly recommend is aforementioned Bach, Telemann "Twelve fantasias for flute solo" (and his other flute music, all Jean-Pierre Rampal), "Songs of the seashore" James Galway, flute. Vivaldi, of course ...

Some of my very favourites. You may already have them, of course.

I'm getting all the sonata stuff of youse and @BosseBe!

I'm no stranger to some of it myself. I've listened to a fair bit of Holst, Rachmaninoff, Ravel, Stravinskij, and their ilk in my day.

And my amp is an old Sansui AU-7900.
Speakers have varied wildly over the years.
I'm looking at Dali for the moment.

But, now it's time to step up your game and join us who inhabit the twentyfirst century!

These are some of the things I've been listening to lately:

Metalwings - Crying of the Sun
I really love the video! The music could have been harder, with a lot more edge.

Terminatryx - Ontvlugting
This is just so beautiful, both music and video!
Of course, Terminatryx is NOT only lately.
I could listen to them all the time. Breaks allowed for Sabbath and other classical music when needed!

Like maybe this:

Theatre of Tragedy - Aegis

"Gaunt and gnarl'd
Reflecteth the silver shield this welkin aghast
And with haste translateth to gild'd black post and fast"
"Anon - anon, say I! - the lid aside
Crawl without this velvet-clad coffin blest
The bottom sand of the hourglass is at tide
"Sensing this pine is as deep as the deepest chasm
'Tis and hath e'er been merry blood to pest
Hither! - cede and fulfil my phantasm
To be adust for time longer can I not bide
Cherish me and sonorously do me laud
Hence the heart hale out thro' the chest
For dread! - thine eyes will behold a guise faugh'd"
Misery thee?! - Rather misery me
For in Time's durance am I naught but wee"
"This tender and loving pest I to thee bequeath
Thence switly wilt thou errant to 'Neath"
"And to me should'st thou be the humblemost knave
Lest fear! - spit I on thy cist and grave
Lest leer I at thee and do bewitch
And the tharms fluttering claw'd and eldritch"
"To conquer thee and thy blood for glore
Art thou my afeard and reluctant whore
Irksomely coy, save wiliéd by alarum
Bear this torture and maim with decorum
"If e'er always was I this blissful and blithe
Would I resign to but its wee tithe"
"Purvey my ache and quench my profoundest urge
And to thee will I sing the lull-dull dirge
Deliver thy blood like the rill filleth the ghyll"
"Burrow to the trothplight with Night and Devil
Bid Him to league with me - forsooth, merry to 'come 'twill"
"Whilom wast thou vestal, yet now flit to thy tryst
Elsewise will I coerce thine consonantry to turn whist
Grasp I the snath and cut off thine breath
"Death - oh! fair and 'guiling copesmate Death
So that thou canst in darkness and inferno vester
Be not a malais'd beggar; claim this bloody jester!"
For do I solely what He to me liefly saith"
