In chronological order

Henry Purcell – O Let Me Weep, For Ever Weep [c.1692]  

A song in which to weep.


Johann Sebastian Bach – Erbarme Dich, Mein Gott (Matthäus-Passion) [c.1720]


Bach was closest to God. Period.

Franz Schubert – Piano Trio in E Flat [1827]

If it was good enough for Kubrick (Barry Lyndon)…

John Cage – Four Walls: Act I, Scene I [1944]  



Miles Davis & John Coltrane – Teo [1961]


Miles hated liner notes, so I'll keep shtum.


Bill Evans – Spartacus Love Theme [1963]

Evans conversing with himself via reel-to-reel. Deeply, deeply moving.

Arvo Pärt – Für Alina [1976]  

Sublime introspection.

David Bowie & Brian Eno – Warszawa [1977]  

Taken from side two of 'Low'. Berlin. Cold turkey. Bowie at his darkest and finest.

Steve Reich – Nagoya Marimbas [1994]  

Everything is going to be okay.

Thomas Newman – Dead Already ('American Beauty') [1999]  

A great soundtrack for a great movie. The End.
