I'm a marching band/winterg u a r d judge and I've judged some visually stunning shows that have used this piece. Very hard to give constructive comments into your tape recorder when you're moved to tears! Also, I've head the piece used on the PBS Memorial Day concert from the Capitol in Washington DC. It's frequently played by the Natl Symphony Orchestra during a tribute to a member of the military. Heartbreakin g .

Oddly enough, I first remember hearing this song at the end of Season 20 of Top Gear. They were playing it as they were driving through all of the parked cars. I'm glad that I heard it here so that I could get the name.

One of the most meltingly heartfelt, yet nobly dignified passages in any work for orchestra. A true precious moment in western culture.

I have played this song in symphony orchestra. One of my top musical experiences!

Isn't it Agnus Dei?

I love this song. It reminds me of the Wordsworth poem "to me the meanest flower that blows can give thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears."

Katy - I know exactly what you are talking about. I can remember being in college playing this with a full symphony and desperately trying to hold back the tears. I believe it's the harmony.

It reminds me of another song...I believe it is from the Lion King...or something like Amici Forever. Now that I hear more of it, I am almost certain it is a song that Amici Forever did. Amazing. Scottandkaty 1 , I understand what you mean about crying just from the pure breathtaking beauty of it. It truly is a beautiful piece.

This song has made me sob deeply in the past. Never before or since had this experience. Don't cry a lot. I wonder if it's just the breathtaking beauty of it, especially the suspensions that are continual in the song.
