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]  

Space.

 

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.
