Walrus,

Here's my submission, something from down under that is appropriate to our times.

Bird Lives

Walrus, Salute !

Yes, time for sanity, and beauty !

My small contributions to both:

Stick with these, they have long intros that set the theme, the improvisation is the key: slow relaxed and in the groove:

I have added a new category - Music for those so inclined.

I had little planned today. You caught my attention with the mention of Whitman. I loved what we called at the time I majored in Englsh, the American Renaissance, of which Whitman was included. I loved "Leaves of Grass" then and still do.

(For those interested in the Civil War, Whitman spent much time serving as a hospital worker/nurse carrying for the wounded.)

I am so happy I took your suggestion and listened to the entire perromance. It was inspiring. I wish I could have actually been in the audience.

Some suggested YouTube playlists:

Western civ: a long (90+) playlist sampling mainly choral Christian music 1600-1870
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6WIWapSWYkfM5buYg5d8vmAxNXkQBYgN

Bach cantata favorites
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6WIWapSWYkeIvAZIflZMWXpNu51T1cPY

Handel Chandos anthems
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLblQ3ofZwdk1qzrD0zrh8OTBoUPQhHeQn
These are set to texts from the Psalms, so should appeal to both Christians and Jews.
In any case, incredibly beautiful.

Henry David Thoreau Quotes
If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

Oh and one other:

If you like the music of Ennio Morricone written for the "spaghetti Westerns", you will probably like this:

Ah! Walrus may I offer my requiem mass I wrote with Kurt Vonnegut and produced by Michael Brecker. I was an outlier at Juilliard when I got my masters there. I was 35 when I entered the master's program. I accrued the wrath of the classical establishment but finished the requiem project no matter. It is now recorded on Newport Classic which remained in the top 20 worldwide for indie vocal and opera. Here is a Youtube clip I put together highlighting the journey I took to get it produced and out there.

Vegetius

The notorious thoughtcriminal Jonathan Bowden lectured on Elgar (among others).

These talks are usually available on youtube although mass-reporting my Marxists tends to get them taken down sooner or later.

Walrus,

I’m not sure if you have heard English composer John Taverner. Beautiful compositions. Here’s a taste.

As an amateur woodwinds player I am a big fan of jazz, the quintessential American music. One of my favorites is trumpeter Lee Morgan.

Walrus,

Off topic

What's the latest on the Melbourne lockdown?

Take a gander at this:

Thanks for the music interlude.

A.I.S.

I for one am a pretty big fan of Sabaton.
I realize that military history metal may not be every ones cup of tea, but I really like this one (in swedish):

And this one:

Also, if you ever wondered how quite a lot of songs would sound in Russian:
such as Rammstein:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHAsg2k7iI8
or the offspring https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBAmXbPfvck
or Nirvana https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9RY25eImcw

Rammstein in Russian is pretty cool.

Also, Tapok did so many Sabaton Covers they teamed up for a live tour.

Events behind this song are a pretty good "dont invade Russia 101" in a nutshell.

J,

What's Magna Carter and the golden thread that runs through English Common Law?

"“We can no longer have people simply out and about for no good reason whatsoever.”"

Sounds like Congresswoman Debbie Dingell talking. Government will keep out rights in a lockbox, like Al Gore promised to do with Social Security. We'll get 'permission' to exercise them, maybe, someday.

I had never experienced the sound of an "electric violin" before, and as a lover of the classics thought that such a thing would horrify me. It did just the opposite. This young lady had many YouTube presentations.

On a lighter note, the soprano Sally Matthews (the soprano soloist in "A Sea Symphony") presents a decidedly less staid side of her repertoire in

in a scene from Handel's very last Italian opera, Dedamia.

See also one of her scenes in Mozart's "Cosi fan Tutte."
