Helping and entertaining you from GCSEs through to university…
For discussion of anything to do with musical instruments or classical music. Share sheet music, discuss equipment, music board exams etc.
The Gorecki Totus tuus is stunning imo.
'O magnum mysterium' by morten lauridsen is equally lovely.
I'm really into music by Vasks just now. I love Distant Light and Plainscapes It's very different but just magical! For me anyway

What about Toru Takemitsu? Although not a Western composer, he was heavily influenced by Messiaen (also great!) and is pobably the most well known of Japanese composers.
