A week of classical: Josh is doing a very cool experiment next week: nothing but classical music. This is something I would like to do myself, as I'm woefully under-educated in the subject, yet most of my performance lies in it. (For example, I'd never heard Beethoven's Missa Solemnis before singing it in September.) I hope he throws some choral works up in the mix. Hell, I might send him some. I've got copies of four of the five Concordia Society concerts, including stuff like Bach's "Singet dem Herrn", Bruckner's "Os Justi", Frank Martin's "Mass For Double Choir", and other cool stuff by Verdi, Stravinsky, Part, Tavener, Harris, and Thompson. I could give him a day full of chamber choir!
