Where have you attended orchestral Masses in the Old Rite?  I am not aware of any church in North America that does this other than St. John Cantius in Chicago.

I visited St. Agnes once, I'm sure you know of it, but that is Novus Ordo. For the Old Rite I attended Mass at Holy Family parish in Toronto, run by the Oratorians, though unlike St. Agnes that was not actually orchestral, it was Palestrina.  I also attended an orchestral liturgy at St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral in London Ontario.

I have been working with a group of friends in Montreal to get a Tridentine Mass there. We succeeded in finding a beautiful church and had a Solemn Mass for the feast of the Immaculate Conception in December. The girl's choir from my own parish, St. Clement's in Ottawa, sang exceptionally in chant and polyphony for the Mass, but recently I have been looking into whether it would be possible to enlist some help from the faculty of music at Mcgill university (where my friends are studying) to get an orchestral Mass sometime this spring.

Speaking of St. John Cantius, I intend to pay that parish a visit when I'm down in Chicago next (have to go for an interivew with the ICK). Their music program is supposed to be amazing.

It is.  I'm sure you'll love it.  The mass I attended there in October included a Mozart mass with full orchestra...and the sermon was on Emperor Bl. Karl!

Interesting that you brought up the Blessed Emperor while I have the topic of the Institute of Christ the King in my head- at the seminary over Christmas the first-years (as is customary there) performed a short play about the life of Emperor Karl. It seems that one of the Habsburgs, or a relation of the Imperial Family, who studied at the Gricigliano seminary in 2004 requested a few days of leave. When questioned by the rector he explained that he had to go to Rome for his grand-uncle's beatification- Needless to say his request was granted! The Institute happens to have the support of a number of noble families.

Back to rock music, I like Foo Fighter's lighter songs (That's the song I just finished listening to).  However, I like everything from Metallica to Mozart to the Mammas and the Papas, from Schubert to George Strait to Soundgarden.  So, basically, I like a little bit of everything.

I enjoy Blue Grass as well, especially Alison Krauss.  But actually I enjoy all kinds of music depending on my mood.  I guess I am partial to 70's rock music: America, Eagles, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, Steve Miller Band, etc.  However, recently, I have come to really enjoy Spanish folk music, especially that of Clara Montes, and Portuguese folk music (fado), especially that of Ana Moura.

My favourite music is Golden Age Hip Hop (1985 - 1996)
I also like some Rock, some Drum & Bass, some Roots Reggae, some Jazz, some Funk, some Soul.
So long as it's not dance genres, indie rock and grime.
As for Classical music, some of it is alright. I like it when classical music is remixed with hip hop and drum & bass beats.

As seen in my profile, I like most everything except for gangsta rap (some rap like Will Smith is OK), country, and metal. As of late I have developed an especial liking for disco music. Why, I don't know.

As an interesting note, I've listened to the Bee Gee's "Tragedy" over 200 times in the past one and a half months.

Also, perhaps Theodore has heard of "A Fifth of Beethoven"? If he doesn't know what I'm talking about, he can ask, I just felt like stimulating some more discussion here about music.

Hmmm, this thread is so old that I posted on it in my deleted former identity (#5). And I am too old to change much, so what I said still applies. Obsessive listening is something I do too, but it must be said that disco-era Bee Gees has not figured in it. It's good, slick pop music but not my kind of thing. I can see why people would like rap, apart from the poisonous, hateful variety that you also decry, but it's not something I've ever got into. In fact the only rap record I know at all is Eminem's masterly Stan, which a friend forced me to listen to and which I thought magnificent (also harrowing, but not gratuitously so). I've never taken it further, though, even with Eminem himself. There's so much good music of so many kinds that no one person is going to get to know more than a fraction of it, and I am happy with the fraction I have.

So true, Peter, so true.

And since it's the 33rd anniversary of Disco Demolition Night (the second-worst promotion in baseball history), I am defying Steve Dahl and listening to my disco playlist on my iPod.

As I grew older, my musical tastes have narrowed.

I listen to anything classical (Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, Rachmaninoff, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Handel, Verdi, Vivaldi, and many others). I love opera, hymns and chants, baroque music, waltz, medieval music, Celtic, French folk music.

I also love a bit of jazz, movie soundtracks and Broadway musicals.

I still love Dashboard Confessional, and Augustana.

Finally, I listen to rock and metal (Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Metallica) and I'm glad to know there are a few out here who enjoy them, too.
