Of all the American symphonic conductors who ever were, they may be no greater jack-of-all-trades: conductor, composer and teacher (especially that last) than Leonard Bernstein.  Certainly, he was…Continue

A fantastic singer who died too young singing a favorite song of mine (it's kind of a personal anthem.)

Somewhere along the way I neglected to welcome all the new members.  (I don't know how you find the time to welcome everyone by name on all your groups Steph).  Anyway, everyone welcome to Music Lovers!  Feel free to post a discussion on whatever genre of music you want, my ipod is never full enough!

Thank you for the compliment Idaho :)   Yes, Hallelujah was hauntingly beautiful in Shrek; very appropriate for the scene. I think I first heard it in Shrek too, although I can't recall exactly. And I still enjoy some of the religious music that I used to hear so regularly in my devout days.  The music and sense of community are among the very few things that I miss.

James, I love your comments about religious music, especially:

"Sometimes I see a work of art or hear a beautiful song that was inspired by religion and start to feel that there is a place for religion in a truly good and loving world. Then the religious open up their mouth and try as hard as they can to prove me wrong. Here is an example of a beautiful song that had me feeling the unity until I read the comments under it...."

I'm not going to read the comments under that video.  I would just upset me too much, but I too love the song Hallelujah.  I first heard it in the Movie Shrek, which is one of my favorite movies (watch it every year).  The song went so well with the sadness that Shrek was feeling, that it just made me love it.

I used to like a lot of the Mormon hymns when I was Mormon, but I very seldom listen to any now because the message annoys me too much.  I still enjoy a few religious songs other than mormon because they don't reming me as much of what religion has done to me.
