Wow!, I normally do not listen to classical music very often, but this CD, "Classical Music for People Who Hate Classical Music" blew me away! There are all sorts of music, soft and steady, fast and strong. I absolutely wholeheartedly recommand this, and I don't recommand alot of things in my life.

This is one of the most complete "beginners" classical collections that one could ask for! The selections range from rousing, spirited choices to those that encourage quiet contemplation. The best part is the number of songs that one might not recognize by title but will most definitely by sound! A perfect introduction to the classics.

It's a good collection don't hear it too often. Specifically obssessed by 13th centuries music of the monks. ORFF: INTRODUCTION TO "CARMINA BURANA" most demanding to hear but not really popular in Pakistan yet.
