Last of the Classical Music

This about rounds it out.  I have thought about doing the same thing with soundtracks at some point in time - we'll see.  Hope your holidays are fantastic, that you aren't stressed and that your spouses and children and roommates are keeping the teasing/tormenting to a minimum.  In the meantime, if you are going with a must listen to from this list, consider the Anvil Chorus, The Ashokan Farewell and A Lark Ascending. Incidentally, they are all pretty relaxing.  Go on, you deserve it.
Tarrega  - Recuerdos de la Alhambra
Tchaikovsky – Piano Concerto #3, The Nutcracker Suite, 1812 Overture, Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Marche Slave

Ungar – The Ashokan Farewell

Verdi – La Traviata, Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves (Nabucco), Anvil Chorus (Il Trovatore),  Dies Irae (Messa Da Requiem), La donna è mobile (Rigoletto), Nulla in Mundo Pax Sincera
Vivaldi – Four Seasons, Guitar Concerto 

Wagner - Overture (Tannhauser), Ride of the Valkyries, Overture (The Flying Dutchman) 

Webber – Invocation 

Williams, John – Call of the Champions

Williams, Ralph Vaughn -  A Lark Ascending, 5 Variants of 'Dives & Lazarus', Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis, Fantasia on Greensleeves

I sang the Anvil Chorus in a choir I was in several years ago. Love it! We might have done Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves too, but I can't remember. Thanks for sharing this list. I'm interested in your soundtrack list too.
