Top Five: Classical music

Time for another top five.

I don't have a lot of classical music in my collection, mainly because I'm picky about music. Specifically, I tend to pick out music I like by mood, and most classical pieces wander from mood to mood (sad -> angry ->inspirational etc.)

So, if you would, gentle readers, give me your five saddest pieces of "classical" music.

See, if it's cheerful, happy, exuberant, etc... I probably won't like it.

I'd love the mp3 if you can pass it on.

The bit that got me thinking about this request was a Baroque piece, Stabat Mater Dolorosa (and I'm blanking on the composer now). I guess Orchestral might be the place to look?

Pergolesi is the composer you're thinking of. And it's the first movement of his Stabat Mater that you like.

See, it shows how clueless I am about classical music I am that it didn't occur to me that orchestral precludes choral. The Stabat Mater I liked so much is a choral piece (er, singing and instruments - I don't know what term that falls under).

And yeah, the LJ addy will get to me. Thank you!
