Thanks for the link, it's lots of fun! But I can't get past Spring Act 3:4. Did you finish it?

That's because the piece is not in fact by Thomas Tallis, a 16th c. church composer, but by Ralph Vaughan Williams, an early 20th c. secular fellerHeh, sorry I guess you misunderstood. I know that was written by Vaughan Williams. My point was the piece doesn't sound at all like Tallis' style to me. However, I haven't listened to THAT much Tallis so maybe that's why.
But for sheer dramatic (and emotive) import I'd go for Maurice Duruflé's Requiem. Its beautiful and sublime.Absolutely!
Goodkind rolling into pages of philosophical speeches from a character that would have been fine if he didn't repeat the same thing over and over clubbing you on the head over and over... and then he toned it down and got back to telling a good story with the last couple of books. My fear is the last book drops back into preachiness.I found that once the preachiness started, it never went away. In saying that, I still enjoyed the characters and story as a whole and the last book in the Sword of Truth series is definitely worth reading. I'm curious what his next endeavor will be.
