A little piece of Heaven....


Although I prefer Sibelius' 6th Symphony, here's the finale to the 5th ; once played during the consecration of a 'silent' mass while on retreat many years ago....It really did work ! As a bit of extra fun I've included the end of Sibelius' 2nd Symphony , Mahler's 2nd Symphony - if it doesn't bring a tiny tear of hope to your eye , well ? you aint human....

That is a really good version (in fact, an extraordinary rendition)of the Sibelius 5. Which orchestra is it?
