    One incredibly powerful song, unlike anything you might think of. This is a concert band performance of An American Elegy, by Frank Tichelli

    http://www.manhattanbeachmusic.com/a...ican_elegy.mov

    From the composer:

    An American Elegy is, above all, an expression of hope. It was composed in memory of those who lost their lives at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999, and to honor the survivors. It is offered as a tribute to their great strength and courage in the face of a terrible tragedy. I hope the work can also serve as one reminder of how fragile and precious life is and how intimately connected we all are as human beings.

    I was moved and honored by this commission invitation, and deeply inspired by
    the circumstances surrounding it. Rarely has a work revealed itself to me with such powerful speed and clarity. The first eight bars of the main melody came to me fully formed in a dream. Virtually every element of the work was discovered within the span of about two weeks. The remainder of my time was spent refining, developing, and orchestrating.

    The work begins at the bottom of the ensemble's register, and ascends gradually to a heartfelt cry of hope. The main theme that follows, stated by the horns, reveals a more lyrical, serene side of the piece. A second theme, based on a simple repeated harmonic pattern, suggests yet another, more poignant mood. These three moods - hope, serenity, and sadness - become intertwined throughout the work, defining its complex expressive character. A four-part canon builds to a climactic quotation of the Columbine Alma Mater. The music recedes, and an offstage trumpeter is heard, suggesting a celestial voice - a heavenly message. The full ensemble returns with a final, exalted statement of the main theme.

    I was lucky enough to watch this performed live last year, with my daughter playing the trumpet solo offstage. No song has ever moved me so much, before or since.

    Give yourself time to listen...

    I realize these are mostly secular songs listed in this thread, but there might be some fellow Crackberrians who recognize this Contemporary Christian tune

    "His Strength Is Perfect" by Steven Curtis Chapman...was the song playing on the radio when the phone rang, letting us know my dad's month long battle with a debilitating stroke was over. It's been a very poignant and emotional song for me over the years.

    "I Will Be Here" also by Steven Curtis Chapman...was my wife and I's song at our wedding...13 years later it's still our song.

    An 8-bit track and some heavy metal tune mixed together was playing on CKLN before it went underground (a few years before it did) caught my attention and oh my goodness, I was emotionally overwhelmed! I forgot the tune and the metal track, but it was so awesome!!!
